The 21 Best Vegan Cereals – Ranked

7. Love Grown Chocolate Comet Crispies – Our second Love Grown cereal. This is Love Grown’s version of Cocoa Krispies. Like the Power O’s, the test is really different than a rice based cereal, but it really grew on me. It has a great cocoa taste, great crunch and holds up fantastic in milk. If you give Love Grown a buy, wait until your second bowl to fully form your opinion – it may grow on you quick like it did me.

Nature's Path Cinnamon Jungle Munch

6. Nature’s Path Cinnamon Jungle Munch – This is the point in the list where it started to become apparent to me that I’m still a 12 year old child when it comes to my taste in cereals. There are a lot of animals on boxes in the top 6. (and to be fair, there’s an astronaut on number 7 comet crispies) As for the Jungle Munch, the taste is great, good sweetness with a punch of cinnamon. Texture is good and doesn’t go to complete mush in milk.

5. Reese’s Puffs – Were you just shocked to find out Reese’s Puffs are vegan? I was too! If you want to wake up in the morning and take a sledgehammer of peanut butter and chocolate straight to the face then look no further! These things are unbelievably good. Are Reese’s Puffs as healthy as our Top 4. Nope. That’s how they ended up at 5, but for a guilty pleasure they’re hard to beat.

Jen’s Notes: Contains sugar. Sugar that is not notated as being Organic or Cane is processed with bone char.

4. Cascadian Farms Fruitful O’s – These little gems are a play on Fruit Loops and they do a pretty good job of imitating the originals. The flavors are a little subtle than I remember from Fruit Loops, but if you were a Fruit Loop fan (I was pretty indifferent when it came to Fruit Loops) then I would definitely give these a shot.

3. Cascadian Farms Cinnamon Crunch – Don’t get your hopes up. Don’t get your hopes up. This is what I have to tell myself every time I try a cereal that is pretending to be my all-time favorite Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Jen has bought me multiple cereals that looked like CTC on the box and each one has completely disappointed. Is Cinnamon Crunch as good as CTC? No. Let’s not get carried away here, BUT they are really frickin’ good.

2. Nature’s Path Chocolate Koala Crisp – In my opinion, if you’re going to imitate a cereal you better do it well and Nature’s Path nailed it with Koala Crisp. A chocolaty rice crisp cereal that reminds me childhood without all the guilt. About half way through the taste test I was sure that cute, cuddly Koala would be wearing the crown, but it got knocked off the number 1 spot by a bit of a surprise…

Nature's Path Optimum Power Blueberry Cinnamon Flax

1. Nature’s Path Optimum Power Blueberry Cinnamon Flax – Are you surprised? I was. I never would have thought a cereal with the word flax in the title would have won a best cereal taste test, but here we are. Does it taste great? You bet. Has a bit of a Honey Smacks taste to it, but with an addition of blueberries. Does it hold up to milk? 1000% yes. The last bite has the same great crunch as the first bite. It’s amazing. It’s organic. It has 18g of protein per bowl. If you haven’t already, go get you a box of Blueberry Cinnamon Flax and give it a go.
