What are some of your favorite healthy-ish cereals? I alternate between different cereals including plain Cheerios, Crispix, and Grape Nuts. There are some other cereals I enjoy that claim to be healthy but they have high sugar content on par with children’s cereals.

I like mixing a couple together. My usual is just Raisin Bran and Cheerios (or whatever equivalent store brands are on sale).

Bran flakes without the raisins. I add my own banana or strawberries. I used to buy the ones with the raisins but I ended up disliking it over time. It was too sweet, too many raisins, and the raisins were almost as hard as rocks.

We get plain cheerios and sometimes bitesize shredded wheat.
Sweeten them by a litte bit of sugar free pancake syrup. Also add unsalted almonds and use unsweetened vanilla cashew milk.

Dry cereal is something I consider a snack food that I eat maybe twice a year. But I keep a box of oats in my pantry for days that I run out of yogurt and a banana. In the time it takes for my coffee water to heat I can have a bowl of hot oatmeal with a pat of butter and a spoonful of sugar. Healthy, probably not but it is so warm and comforting.

Only cereal I can tolerate without sugar is Special K. I don't know how much sugar is in the product.

I like Grape Nuts Flakes, but cant find them at some grocery stores. I stock up when I run out. Shredded wheat is not too bad.

Puffed Spelt (can't seem to find in retail in my area) and even bulk order is expensive (Amish farms), Grainberry Onyx Sorghum (toasted oats) and Muesli.

Sprinkle with Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg and add berries of any type. Especially good with Serviceberries (Juneberries) during the brief window of the berries being in season. Pick em before the birds get them all!
Delicious...
