Keto-friendly cereal that tastes amazing and won’t break the bank? Yes!
Before keto, I’ve always had a love for cereal. And even now, living low carb, my love for the crunchy, sweet morsels has never gone away, so I was super excited to see the new General Mills Wonderworks keto cereal at Walmart on my last grocery run! I’ve recently discovered this cereal is available at Target as well. Even better, you can save on a box or two at Target with this 20% off Circle offer!
We all know cereal is yummy, however, we also all know it’s typically carb-heavy and sugar-loaded. Seeing a keto-friendly version on the store shelves makes it an easy add to my weekly grocery pickup – such a game changer!
Quick note! This post is not sponsored. I happened to test out this cereal for myself when I spotted it at Walmart, and loved it enough to share with you all!
Wonderworks KETO cereal is the brainchild of General Mills and they’ve created three enticing flavors; chocolate, peanut butter, and cinnamon. Well, I tried all 3 and I’m here to let you in on a little spoiler… they’re all WONDERful!
Do I have my favorite? YEP! Will I be buying another box? HECK YES!
Even if you are not doing keto, this option is still perfect if you’re watching your sugar intake, plus I have no mom guilt giving this cereal to my boys (and they loved it!).
This isn’t the first keto cereal out there and our team happens to love a few other brands, such as Catalina Crunch and Magic Spoon. Sure, they’re delicious in their own right, but I was personally thrilled with the fact that this cereal is on a grocery shelf, I did not have to buy in bulk (great if I ended up not liking it), and it wasn’t too terrible in price in comparison to others.
Just so you can compare pricing, I broke it all down for you:
- Magic Spoon – Only available in 4 packs, $39 ($9.75 per box)
- Catalina Crunch – Only available in 4 packs, $49 ($12.25 per box)
- Wonderworks Keto Cereal – Available online and in-store at Walmart & Target in single boxes, only $6.99 a box!
You can save 20% off right now at Target!
One of the big wins for Wonderworks was the fact that a serving size is 1 CUP! 🙌 When a serving size is so small, but you eat double because you love it so much, are you really keeping it low carb? Who munches on only 1/4 cup of cereal? Not me! I want a big ole bowl of cereal for breakfast! 😆
Another big thing for me with this keto cereal was the taste straight out of the box as well as when it’s served with almond milk. Keto ingredients can be tricky at times but Wonderworks keto-friendly cereal NAILED IT! Seriously, it has the crunch of a KIX cereal (remember those 😂), but with true sweet cereal flavors.
So then the real test came along when I poured the milk over it. This keto cereal does not get soggy like normal cereal. The flavors do change a little when liquid hits it, but not by much, as it still tastes amazing.
Speaking of flavors, here are the 3 available from Wonderworks:
Have you missed cocoa puffs? Man, I remember filling my bowl up with this cereal when I was a kid! The chocolate flavor they brought in with these crunchy bites was incredible. It’s a HOME RUN!

But this keto cereal doesn’t just need to be served with milk…
I don’t know if you are like me, but I love eating cereal dry so I thought why not make a keto sweet snack mix with this?! I combined the chocolate and peanut butter cereals with some cashews and some keto-friendly chocolate chips for the perfect grab-and-go mix when I’m in the mood for something sweet. YUM!
I hope you’re able to try this cereal out ASAP, and be sure to come on back to let me know what you think!
