10 Breakfast Cereals You Didn’t Know Were Vegan

The classic cereals that Australian’s have grown up eating, are, of the most part, vegan. Who would have thought that the baby boomers out there have been eating a vegan cereal this whole time? This list is by no means exhaustive as there are plenty more vegan cereals out there, but here are a few that you would never would have guessed.

Vegan Cereals

Rice Bubbles

That’s right Rice Bubbles are vegan and surprisingly nutritious. Made from the puffed grains of whole white rice, they contain no preservatives and no artificial colours or flavours. My childhood had frequent experiences with Rice Bubbles, but mostly in the form of chocolate crackles and Rice Bubble Slices.

Cocoa Pops

Just like a chocolate milkshake, only crunchy! It’s a saying that most of Australian’s would know and who would have thought that this cereal is completely vegan. CRAZY. Although, this wasn’t an all the time cereal for myself, it was the one I always wanted.


It seems like one of the HIGHEST PROTEIN cereals is vegan too. But how is that possible? Looks like Nutri-Grain unlocked the vegan protein code way before everyone else.  Start training for that triathlon, but keep it plant-based with your high protein cereal.


How do you have your Weetbix? Do you slice a banana on top, or cover with a little sugar? Everyone seems to have their own special Weetbix routine, that just happens to be plant-based for the main ingredient. Another high protein cereal without animal products.

Fruity Bites Wildberry

A crunchy pillow filled with fruit. That is always going to be a win. Fruity Bites Wildberry is a great start to any day, with a healthy dose of plant milk.  They’re also a great source of fibre, B1, B2 and B3 vitamins.


Simple, wholegrain toasted wheat, and something that has been around for decades. There isn’t too much to this cereal but people love it. It’s in most peoples top 10 cereal list. It is also a great base for cookie recipes.

Cheerios Wholegrain

In 2005, it was estimated that one out of every ten boxes of ready-to-eat cereals sold in the U.S. was a box of Cheerios. That is so many little circles of grain. They consist of 4 whole grains, including corn, wheat, oats and rice.

Corn Flakes

The very first Kellogg’s cereal. When you think of breakfast cereal, Corn Flakes are just what comes to mind. Made from crisp, light flakes of sun-ripened corn, they have evolved over the years. Kellogg’s Corn Flakes were certified FODMAP Friendly in 2018 and they have their own Gluten Free version.

Sultana Bran

Fibre, fibre, fibre, Kellogg’s Sultana Bran is packed with fibre and packed with juicy sultanas. I remember vividly pouring this cereal and making sure I had enough sultana’s in my plate. If not I just kept pouring. Which didn’t fair too well for the end of the packet, but you do these things when you are young.
