Can you have cereal on a keto diet? Of course you can! No, you can’t have that kind of cereal. The sugary, starchy cereal that you find on most shelves is way too high in carbs for a keto diet. But you can have Keto Cereal from Netrition!
Netrition has a full range of keto-friendly cereals and granolas. It’s hard for us to figure out the top ones, so we’re using our customers to guide us. These are the eight best-selling keto cereals at Netrition. Enjoy!
Number 8: Nuco Coconut Crunch Cereal
Do you love coconut? This cereal may be for you, especially if you’re avoiding grains or are on a paleo diet. This is a grain-free, but completely delicious cereal. It hits the spot and has only a few ingredients: coconut water, coconut meat, and palm starch. It’s organic and natural.
Each serving has 9 grams of fat, nearly all of it saturated due to the coconut in this cereal. The cereal is high in potassium, with 10% of the daily value.
Each box has 16 servings, so there is plenty to go around! You can eat it as a snack on its own, or mix it with peanut butter. It’s also great as part of a snack mix with nuts, seeds, and Keto-Friendly Chips or Protein Puffs.
Granola is so crunchy, craveable, and delicious, but all those oats, sugars, and dried fruits can make it a high-carb disaster on a keto diet. This Keto Granola is a different story. It has only 4 grams of net carbs. It has 5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and a whopping 14 grams of fat - mostly from almonds. It’s totally free from added sugars, and it’s also gluten-free.
This granola also comes in Cinnamon Pecan. Each bag has 8 servings. Have it in almond or coconut milk, sprinkle it on cottage cheese, or layer it with Greek yogurt to make a parfait. You can even use it as a topping for low-carb ice cream!
If there’s one cereal that is formulated to support ketosis, it’s this one. It comes with MCTs, or medium chain triglycerides. It’s easier for your body to break these down into ketone bodies, which is the goal in a keto diet. This cereal also has collagen, which is needed for healthy bones, joints, hair, skin, and nails.
Each serving has only 1 gram of net carbs. It has 9 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat. It tastes great and is sweetened with monk fruit and stevia. This keto cereal is free from gluten, grain, and soy products. It also comes in Honey Nut and Cinnamon.
Each pouch has 6 servings.

Number Four: Schoolyard Snacks Keto Cereal
You may remember sweet little cereal balls from childhood, and they definitely weren’t keto-friendly. This cereal is different. It still tastes great and is just as crunchy and fun, but this version has 17 grams of protein and only 4 grams of net carbs. The cereal is also gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free.
These are the other flavors.
Each box has 6 servings. This keto cereal is great to pop as a snack on its own, or you can mix it with milk. You can even mix it in a bowl with a bit of peanut butter or sunflower seed butter.
Number Three: Premier Protein Cereal - Mixed Berry Almond
This may be your best bet if you’re looking to max out your protein at breakfast, but you’re hoping not to depend on chicken breast or protein powder. Each serving of this cereal has 20 grams of protein, including from wheat gluten and pea protein. It also has healthy fats from the almonds. There are real strawberries and raspberries, too.
This cereal also comes in Chocolate Almond. Each box has 6 servings. It’s great with almond milk, or, if you want even more protein, cottage cheese or yogurt.
Oatmeal is so comforting and satisfying, but it’s not on a low-carb diet. Now, there’s an alternative if you want a hot keto-friendly cereal. This sugar-free hot cereal has 12 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and only 90 calories and 3 grams of net carbs.
Other flavors include the following.
- Cinnamon Spice
- Natural Flavor
- Peaches and Cream
- Sweet Maple
Each package comes with five single-serving pouches. Just mix the contents of a pouch with boiling water and stir. You can have it on its own, and it’s also great - and still low-carb - with nuts, seeds, or peanut butter mixed in.
