Chain eatery Pret A Manger is launching its first ever vegan cookie as part of its new Spring menu.
The new menu - which hits stores on April 17 - will also include a new vegan breakfast option and flatbread.
According to Pret, the Dark Chocolate & Almond Butter Cookie (£1.45) 'combines vegan dark chocolate with almond butter and a little sea salt'.
A spokesperson said: "Vegan sweet treats are very popular amongst Pret’s customers and this cookie has been created to meet demand."
Pret A Manger will be launching additional vegan products, including the Mango & Banana Sunshine Bowl, (£2.99) which is described as a combination of 'blended ripe mangoes with banana, coconut milk, granola and a little turmeric'.
The Vegan Chilli Flat Bread, (£3.99) - combining spicy vegan chilli, avocado, charred corn and black bean salsa - will also be available.
In addition, the 'chef's special' Avo, Olives & Tomato baguette (£3.50), will become a permanent fixture on the menu.
Hannah Dolan, Head of Food Development at Pret, said: "We're thrilled to be launching a new range of products this spring.
"I'm especially excited about the vegan cookie, which combines almond butter with dark chocolate and sea salt to make the perfect afternoon treat.
"We’re also introducing several new ingredients to our menu for the first time, such as black rice and ancho chilli."
