The “Chikitsa Crumble” is a vegan creation that packs 12 grams of fiber, 12 grams of protein and 5-servings of fruits and vegetables and is only 280 calories the superfood-loving chef said to SWNS.
“The cookie was developed to help children, teenagers and adults – including those who won’t normally touch fruit and vegetables – to get their vital ‘five-a-day’ without even realizing it,” he said to SWNS.
“As a chef and nutritionist, I’m constantly reminded how difficult it is for people to make healthy food choices and to navigate their way through the minefield of diet advice and conflicting information,” he added.
The award-winning chef said his recipe has been such a hit with friends and family members, he is making at least 100 of the gluten-free cookies a week.
Though the chef has yet to roll them out to wider consumers through his website – a move he is considering for the future after seeing how popular they have been within his inner circle.
“I’m over the moon that they’ve become so popular.”
