Happy Birthday Annie's Homegrown!

Author: healthnuttxo

In honor of Annie’s Homegrown‘s birthday, I think it would be appropriate to do a review on a cereal I bought, Bunny Love. This cereal is an all natural, whole grain, corn & oat cereal, made without preservatives or fillers, and is vegan.

I decided to pick it up at the store because it was pretty enticing and the nutritional stats fit for what I generally look for in cereal. It was a royal purple box, with pictures of bunny-shaped cereal on the cover. Cute! It was only 110 calories per serving with 3 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of sugar, so I figured it was worth a shot.

I tried this cereal a couple of ways (including yesterday’s recipe!). I poured a bowl of it and examined the shapes- adorable! So cute!

Each piece certainly is crunchy and has a mild, toasted oat flavor.  In fact, this cereal really isn’t sweet at all. I probably wouldn’t eat this on it’s own (as I had hoped for from the cute shapes!), but I found it was good paired with some flavored yogurt. Stonyfield Farm Banilla yogurt and Chobani strawberry greek yogurt were two excellent ways to pair with the cereal. It provided sweetness and a nice crunch to the yogurt. I also liked this cereal paired with some chocolate and vanilla soy milk. I’m sure you can use almond milk as well, but the flavors in the soymilk went nicely with the oaty taste of the bunnies.

Overall, given that it was not intended to be a sugary cereal, I give this cereal 3 1/2 stars, by itself, 4 paired with yogurt or flavored soymilk. The nutrionals are excellent-whole grains, fiber and all natural- but I prefer my cereal just a wee bit sweeter so I can munch it out of the box.

1 serving is 110 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 22 carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.
