Think you can’t have cereal on a keto diet? Think again, my friends! You don’t have to forego the crunchy breakfast treat anymore. These easy and delicious recipes for keto cereal will have you coming back for more!
If you grew up in Canada like I did, you probably spent a large portion of your formative years eating Quaker Harvest Crunch for breakfast. I was never that much of a cereal fan, but a bowl of that granola from the orange box was always welcome.
In fact, I was happy to eat it any time…breakfast, lunch or dinner. It was so good, so crunchy and so, so sweet. Addictively sweet. I shudder now to think of how much sugar was in what I assumed back then was a healthy option. No wonder I liked it so much.
But I don’t miss it anymore, not since I discovered that there are so many delicious and easy ways to make keto cereal.
Can you have cereal on a keto diet?
Cereal is a tough one to give up when starting a low carb, grain-free, or paleo diet. It’s an easy meal or snack, it’s tasty and it fills you up. For a little bit, anyway, before the subsequent blood sugar crash.
But it turns out that you don’t have to give it up at all, since it’s so easy to make your own. These 10 Keto Cereal Recipes are almost as easy to make as grabbing the box from your cupboard and pouring cereal into your bowl.
From granola to crunchy squares to hot cereals for a cold winter morning, we’ve got you covered.

There are a few pretty great low carb cereals you can buy at the store (or online!). But it pays to read labels, as many that claim to be keto are shockingly high carb. Here are a few of my keto-friendly favorites:
NuTrail Granola: This is hands down my favorite store-bought granola. I find it at a few of my local stores and on Amazon.
Perfect Keto: I adore the Honey Nut. I often take little baggies of it for a snack when I am hiking or traveling. I also love to crush it up and use it as the crust for my Keto Key Lime Cheesecake. Use code ALLDAYIDREAM20 for 20% off your entire order!
Magic Spoon: I thought their fruity cereal really did taste like Fruit Loops! It’s not really my kind of thing first thing in the morning, but it might be your. My kids love it.
