Keto cereals to buy
1. Magic Spoon
Magic Spoon Cereal – $39 for a 4-box case (YES, it’s pricey but read on for why we like it!)
- (Frosted flavor) Serving: 3/4 cup | Calories: 110 | Total Fat: 6g | Total Carbs: 8g (2g fiber, 0g sugar, 3g sugar alcohols) | Protein: 12g
This cereal brand is also a favorite of Collin’s along with other members of our team, even 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
2. The Cereal School
The Cereal School Cereal – $49.99 for 24 single bags
- (Cinnamon Bun flavor) Serving: 12g | Calories: 100 | Total Fat: 3.5g | Total Carbs: 1g (1g fiber, 0g sugar) | Protein: 16g
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 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.
3. Low Karb
Keto Nut Granola – $12.99 for 11oz bag
- Serving: 1 bag (22g) | Calories: 190 | Total Fat: 18g | Total Carbs: 10g (4g fiber, 0g sugar, 4g sugar alcohols) | Protein: 5g
This sugar-free granola boasts almonds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, and coconut chips for a healthy bowl of a keto-friendly cereal. In addition to their classic version, this granola comes in Cacao Nut and Blueberry varieties for a slightly sweeter (yet still keto) treat.

2. Chocolate Squares
Recipe from All Day I Dream About Food

Another kid-approval bowl of keto cereal goodness, but this time with a cocoa twist. This recipe follows a similar process as the cinnamon squares above but uses sunflower seed flour instead of almond (perfect for keto eaters with nut allergies).
3. Cinnamon Seed Cereal
- Serving: 1/2 cup | Calories: 244 | Total Fat: 22g | Total Carbs: 9g (6g fiber, 1g sugar) | Protein: 4g
Chockful of coconut, almond, pepitas, and an assortment of other seeds, this healthy granola style cereal is just as good in the morning as it is sprinkled over the top of keto ice cream as a dessert. 😋 Store the big batch of cereal either on the counter or in the fridge if you live in a warmer climate.
