Happy Saturday friends! I hope you’re all staying safe out there this weekend with the big line of storms that swept through San Antonio last night. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted a new product review, and this time I’m checking out TWELVE of the best high protein cereal brands on the market.
I struggled a little bit when I was picking out brands for this edition of Quest for the Best…I kept finding myself asking “where do you draw the line? What counts as protein cereal?” Because really, there are a ton of cereals on the market that highlight their protein content in big bold letters on the front of the box. The issue is that the vast majority of off the shelf, grocery store brands also have pretty high carb counts – and in my mind that kind of eliminates them from the “protein cereal” category.
But alas, I fell into the trap and included a few such cereals and even picked up a couple of protein granolas (ICYMI, granola is notoriously super high in carbs). When you’re scrolling through the brands below, just be sure to pay attention to the calorie content and macro ratios to make sure whichever one(s) you choose to spend your hard earned dolla dolla bills on will work for you and your goals.
Okay, enough rambling! If you haven’t been here to check out one of my Quest for the Best product review series before, here’s what you’ll find:
Above each brand photo you’ll see a clickable link to find it on Amazon and below each brand photo you’ll see a little spreadsheet snippet that includes my rating of taste/texture, plus the macro breakdown, price, and ingredients list. You can click on the little snippets to see them larger or you can click here to see the entire spreadsheet at once. I rank products based primarily on taste/texture – you can weed them out from there based on your preferences of nutrition, ingredients, price, etc.
Here’s a quick rundown of different colors you’ll see in the charts below:
- Yellow (on the macro ratio) indicates carb content.
- Blue (on the macro ratio) indicates protein content.
- Green (on the macro ratio) indicates fat content.
