6 Classic Cereals You Didn’t Know Were Gluten-Free
Sugary favorites, healthy kid-appropriate picks, and everything in between.
Lucky Charms Gluten Free Cereal
The only change made to this gluten-free version? Gluten-free oats were swapped in for regular ones—the marshmallows were already gluten-free. In a side-by-side taste test, we couldn’t tell the difference between the gluten-free version and the original.
To buy: $13.35 for one 25.1-ounce box, amazon.com.
Honey Nut Cheerios Gluten Free Cereal
By simply removing stray wheat, rye, and barley grains from the Cheerios’ oat supply, the childhood favorite has the same addictive honey taste but is gluten-free. They taste the same because wheat was never an ingredient in the first place. Also available: gluten-free Original, Multi-grain, Apple Cinnamon, and Frosted Cheerios.
To buy: $6 for one 17-ounce box, amazon.com.
Post Fruity Pebbles
The colorful classic never had any gluten in it to start with (it’s made with rice), and certifies that this cereal is gluten-free.
To buy: $13.80 for one 34-ounce box, amazon.com.
Barbara’s Puffins Honey Rice
They’re lightly sweet, airy, and crunchy—minus the wheat. Gluten-free little ones will gobble up this pick, and you can feel good about feeding it to them: it has five grams of fiber a serving.
To buy: $6.16 for one 10-ounce box, amazon.com.
Bear Naked Granola (Cacao + Cashew Butter)
Gluten-free oats, pepitas, and semi-sweet chocolate chunks are mixed together with creamy cashew butter and baked just until the clusters start to firm up. Crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, this offering is an irresistible way to fuel up.
To buy: $4 for one 11-ounce bag, amazon.com.
Kellogg's Rice Krispies Gluten Free Cereal
Made from whole grain brown rice, this pick is just as light and crackly as its original counterpart. Be sure to look for the gluten-free markings: regular Rice Krispies are made with malt flavoring, which contains gluten. Douse it in milk, or whip up a big batch of gluten-free Rice Krispies treats.
To buy: $27 for two 12-ounce boxes, amazon.com.
