Frosted Magic Spoon Cereal, possibly the best keto cereal, in a bowl

One of the most popular keto cereal brands is Magic Spoon and it’s a favorite of Collin’s along with other members of our team (including those who don’t always eat keto)!

I was pretty blown away at this cereal as someone who just eats gluten-free (I have a hard time with alternative sugars, taste, and texture, as well). It was super crunchy both with milk and without!

“We tried all 4 flavors of the Magic Spoon cereal, and the frosted flavor was my favorite! It tastes like those yummy frosted animal cookies with the sprinkles, but not as sweet! I wasn’t able to fool my kids, though, and they wouldn’t eat it. My second favorite flavor was the cinnamon. My least favorite was the Fruity — yuck 😆 – Lina

“I am incredibly impressed with this cereal! They definitely nailed all four flavors! My favorites were the Cocoa and Cinnamon—they are SO GOOD, and the cereal holds up well in milk. The others are great, too, but the frosted was a bit sweet for me. My kids tried all of them as well and loved the Frosted and Fruity ones the best. The fruity flavor nearly tastes like Fruity Pebbles!” – Erica

Here’s another brand that gives off the sugary cereal vibe, just without all the actual sugar! The Cereal School has crunchy bites available in Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Bun, Cocoa, and Fruity flavors which come in bowl-sized serving bags.

It’s a little pricier than Magic Spoon, but the individual packs make it easy to grab on your way out the door for a quick breakfast. This is one of the keto cereal brands that sells out fast so scoop your favorite products up while they are available!

Buy it!! This has been my favorite Keto find since starting this new lifestyle. I’ve had it as cereal, in yogurt or just grabbed it out of the bag as a snack. It is so GOOD!! Seriously, just buy it! I know it’s pricey, but I figure that I’m saving on all the crappy food and drinks I was having so this is worth it! Doesn’t feel low carb! Feels like a treat!

The brand Catalina Crunch gets many people’s vote for the best keto cereal as they are packed full of protein, fiber, and flavor. They offer several low carb cereal options like Cinnamon Toast, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Maple Waffle, Honey Graham (a favorite of Hip2Keto’s Kara), and more!

They offer delicious seasonal cereals too like their new Pumpkin Spice Cereal! It has warm notes of pumpkin paired with the comforting flavors of vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. This option does have 5g net carbs, so make sure to stick to just one serving!

Check out this 5-star review:

I waited a long time to try Catalina Crunch due to the cost, but eventually decided to give it a try and so glad that I did! I bought the variety pack of cereal so that I could try all of the different flavors and have loved all of them so far. I can finally enjoy cereal and feel good about eating it with the higher protein and lower carbs. It is now my favorite snack of the day!
