1. Earnest Eats Vegan Hot Cereal with Superfood Grains, Quinoa, Oats and Amaranth – Mayan Blend
This vegan cereal contains superfoods quinoa, oats, and amaranth. I know that quinoa is a super plant food that is rich in protein, calcium, magnesium, and several B vitamins. Both oats and amaranth are packed in protein and minerals.
Aside from being very nutritious, I love that this cereal is very delicious as well. I’ve had this before and I can assure you—you will find the texture to be a lot better than your regular oatmeal.
While it is best served hot, I’ve eaten this cereal cold and it still tastes so good.
2. Nature’s Path Organic Qi’a Gluten-Free Superfood Chia, Buckwheat & Hemp Cereal, Cranberry Vanilla
This vegan cereal is gluten and wheat free. It contains the Qi’a Superfood Chia, which is a combination of chia, buckwheat, and hemp. This should give you the protein and omega-3s that you need to power you throughout the day.
This cereal tastes really good. I recommend adding almond milk and letting it sit for around 10 minutes so that the chia seeds will soak.
If there’s a downside to this product, it’s the cost. It’s quite expensive for me.
3. EnviroKidz Amazon Lightly Frosted Flakes Cereal
Okay, this may be marketed towards kids but I assure you that adults will also love this cereal. These frosted flakes are made from organic cornmeal, evaporated cane juice, and sea salt. I have tasted this once and I have to say, it doesn’t get soggy unlike most of the cereals I know.As an added bonus, this yummy breakfast cereal is gluten-free, wheat-free, is low in sodium, has no trans fats or additives, or preservatives. While this cereal isn’t the most protein and fiber-packed product on this list, it makes up for it with its taste.
4. Cascadian Farm Organic Fruitful O’s Cereal
I know a friend who just loves this cereal. She serves this to her kids, who can’t get enough of the fruit flavors. She says that the flavors are made with natural products. And there’re no artificial colors used in the cereals.
I’ve tasted this cereal before and I remember it to being crunchy and firm. It didn’t get soggy when I added rice meal.
5. Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods Non-Dairy Hot Cereal, Cranberry Almond Made With Organic Power Grains
This is a very delicious cereal that is highly recommended to people with huge appetites. It is made with organic whole grains, almonds, and dried cranberries. The cranberries aren’t that sweet (which I like) and the almonds are a bit crunchy.
This cereal is very pleasant without being overly sweet. And as a bonus, you will get up to 8 grams of fiber for every cup.
6. Holy Crap Breakfast Cereal
The name of the product is quite funny, but I swear that you will take it seriously once you have tasted it. This cereal is delicious and it will really help you go to the CR regularly. This is the kind of cereal I will recommend to people dealing with constipation issues.
Preparing it is also easy. I often soak the cereals in hot water so that the chia seeds would develop into a gelatinous coating form. Then top it off with fresh foods to make this breakfast or snack a lot tastier.
7. Pure Traditions Instant Hot Cereal
As the name would tell you, this cereal is so easy to prepare you can have it after fixing your hair in the morning. You just have to add hot water and wait for 3 minutes. You’ll then have a great tasting cereal.
I find the texture of this cereal very similar to oatmeal. I like to add some goji berries to it just to give it a different flavor.
8. Go Raw 100% Organic Live Granola Cereal
It’s another tasty cereal that I can recommend to you. I also like that it isn’t too sweet, while still being crunchy. It holds up really well in milk.
You can also mix this with fresh fruits for a healthy breakfast, or with dried fruit pieces which you can chomp on your way to the office.
Some people may find the flavor too bland though, so this cereal isn’t the best when it comes to taste.
9. Quaker Life
Quaker is a brand that even non-vegans are familiar with. It’s encouraging that big brands like Quaker now have vegan cereals like this one. It has 20 grams of whole grains for every serving, and each serving is packed with B-vitamins.
Despite coming from a known brand, this cereal is also very reasonably priced.
One word of caution though—I find this cereal a bit sweet for my taste.
10. Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs Cereal
Rounding out our list is this one from Kashi. It contains 18 grams of whole grains per serving, and 0-gram sugar.
I love that it has a wonderful texture. It also doesn’t end up soggy unlike most cereals I know.
If there’s something I don’t like with this cereal, then it has to be the price. It’s a bit expensive.
As you can see, there is no shortage of vegan cereals in the market. Even the big brands like Quaker have their vegan cereals. That’s another good reason to be a vegan.
