Uncle Sam Cereals are Truly Healthy Staples for Breakfast

4

Over the years, the company behind Uncle Sam Cereals has changed hands numerous times. Most recently landing with the mega-corp, Post Foods. They’re now managed under the Three Sisters Cereal division of Post, but nothing has changed about the product itself. Sure, some flavors have come and gone, and the packaging has changed slightly, but the Original Uncle Sam Cereals are holding strong. The formula for those pure, wholesome, crispy flakes hasn’t changed in over a century!

Uncle Sam Cereals are Truly Healthy Staples for Breakfast

Both varieties are naturally filled with fiber and protein, and are free of added sugar. They’re almost on the savory side, but Skinner’s has raisins for sweetness, and both pair well with fresh fruit and milk beverage.

I’ve found that they also work well in recipes. I’ve used them to make Homemade Chewy Granola Bars and to bake 100% Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin Muffins.

Uncle Sam Cereals used to be made in a dairy-free facility, but it looks like Post Foods has moved them into a shared facility. They are still kosher pareve, but contact the company on their procedures if potential trace cross-contamination is a possible concern for you.

This boxed breakfast isn’t for sugar cereal fans. It’s pure, hearty, filling and packed with fiber and protein. Personally, I like the earthy taste, “clean slate” ingredients, and avoiding added sugars in the morning. So for me, and millions of Americans, who’ve been enjoying this cereal for 100+ years, it’s a winner.

  1. Hello,

    I’ve been looking for the recipe for the peanut butter treats you have pictured made with Uncle Sam Cereal, but I can’t find it anywhere on your site. Can you please share it with us?
    Many thanks!

    • Hi Cathy, I didn’t actually make a recipe for those, I just threw them together. If there is something in a PB treat you are looking for (in terms of ingredients), let me know and I’ll try to get more of a recipe together very soon!

      • Hi Alisa,
        Thank you for your response.

        No, not looking for ingredient specifically, just wondering how you made them. Just mix the cereal and peanut butter? Or any other ingredients with it? Do you refrigerate to set, or leave at room temp? Just want to get it right !

        Thank you Alisa; I appreciate your time!
        Best~
        Cathy

        • Hi Cathy, it was so long ago that I’m not sure! I believe they were made with the cereal, peanut butter, sweetener (don’t recall if I used honey, a little stevia, or a combo), and a little coconut oil to crisp. I did pack them into silicone muffin tins, chilled, popped out, and stored them in an airtight container in the refrigerator (that’s my protocol for that type of bar!)..
