I love cereal for breakfast, snack, etc. I buy chex but they are either too sugary or too plain...not much nutritional value. I sometimes eat Glutenfreeda oatmeal or Udi's gluten-free granola but it's expensive and not always what I want in true morning.

So what are some nutritional gluten free cereals that I can find in my local whole foods or in the gluten-free grocery aisle of my grocery store?

I haven't found any cereal that is super nutritious, but in our house besides the Chex cereals we also buy Kix, Berry Berry Kix, Dora the Explorer and the Kellogs Gluten Free Rice Krispies.

My girls do have their cereal with a smoothie alot of morning...for the four of us we use 4 frozen bananas, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, little bit of chocolate syrup and about 2 cups of milk (we use almond)...it's 14 g of protein and around 450 calories.

I put chopped nuts and sliced banana on my cereal. How about nuts or dried fruit? Trail mix? Granola? raisins, dates, craisins, almonds, walnuts, peanuts...

We always buy Mesa Sunrise. I like it very much, it's about as healthy as breakfast cereal can be I guess.

I love Whole O's made by Nature's Path. They taste just like Cheerios, but they don't get soggy as fast. Pile some fresh fruit on top (blueberries are my favorite)to increase nutrition.

Bob really likes the Mesa Sunrise from Nature's Path, but he doesn't like the price. I still buy it for him every once in a while as a treat. When I do we usually pour it into a big covered container and mix it with something cheaper like puffed brown rice then add nuts, seed and dried fruit. For cold cereal he often eats Chex or puffed brown rice or a mixture of the two. Sometimes I make him hot cereal -- brown rice with raisins and cinnamon, buckwheat groats, quinoa flakes, millet, etc. Bob's Red Mill also makes a gluten-free multigrain hot cereal.

I wasn't a big cereal eater before going gluten free so it's not a big deal to me, but I do help Bob with his cereal from time to time.

You can get the Mesa Sunrise in the big bags on the bottom shelf and wait for a sale, I like doing that. There's usually coupons to be found for Nature's Path products, too.

Envirokids PB Panda Puffs - I don't like the other Envirokids cereals.

Jessica's Gluten Free Granola at Whole Foods, delicious. Try the Pecan-Almond.

I make a trail mix like this using either a gluten-free granola or chex, with nuts and dried fruit, the glue is honey and peanut butter melted together. I sometimes eat it as a granola bar, or just chunky trail mix or put it on ice cream....and no, I'm not opposed to ice cream for breakfast sometimes!! 😜
