Greggs has launched a vegan-friendly hot cross bun in time for Easter

If you follow a vegan diet, Greggs is probably the last place you'd think of going – until now.

The high street bakery chain launched a plant-based steak bake at the start of January, following the success of its vegan sausage roll – which was released early in 2019.

The vegan glazed doughnut arrived only a few weeks later in Greggs stores across the country.

Now, just in time for Easter, the king of pastries has launched a brand new plant-based treat: the vegan hot cross bun.

Bursting with orange flavour, the soft buns are made with juicy vine fruits and spices – perfect for those who want to celebrate Easter without gorging on chocolate.

What's more, it costs only £1 for a pack of four.

Each contains 171 calories – which is slightly less than a regular Greggs hot cross bun that has 180 calories.

The dairy-free product is available in stores nationwide and will be sold for a limited time only.

Greggs currently has 2,009 stores in the UK. You can track down your nearest branch by using the online store locator.

The bakery chain recently released a special "black card"- allowing the holder to get free food delivered on request.

Greggs sent its first one to British rapper Stormzy, meaning the artist will eat for free at the chain for life.

If you're looking for more plant-based treats, Waitrose has launched ready-made vegan pancakes in time for Shove Tuesday on February 25th.
