Why You’ll Love Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps - Cacao
Here’s the sweet stuff: Sprouted Brown Rice Cacao Crisps from One Degree Organic Foods are a delicious gluten-free option for breakfast and snacktime that taste good and are good-for-you, too.
While other cereals are loaded with sugars and mystery additives, One Degree goes one step further in creating a treat that offers pure ingredients, all of which are certified “veganic” (vegan and organic) and also verified by the Non-GMO Project.
These cacao crisps take all the health benefits of brown rice and intensifies them by sprouting the grain; then, the mix is lightly sweetened with low-glycemic organic coconut palm sugar from Bali. Also included in One Degree’s original recipe are organic cacao, sunflower oil, sunflower lecithin, and unrefined salt. Each ingredient can be traced back to its source from a QR code on the box, which keeps you informed about how this food product is made.
The difference of sprouted grains
The main ingredient in each 10 oz. box of these cacao crisps is sprouted brown rice. Sprouting is a tool that’s been used for centuries, but in recent years it’s become especially popular for the health benefits that are now known to come along with it.
Sprouting can be done with shelled nuts, grains, or seeds. First, they are soaked until the seedling breaks free; then, they are drained, rinsed, and kept in a moist environment to encourage sprout growth. When this happens, the process of germination begins and the starch in the seed breaks down and starts to fuel its own growth, which means it releases many different nutrients like proteins, vitamins, and minerals.
Sprouting captures these compounds and, in the process, boosts the nutritional content of the seeds, grains, and beans, making them more digestible for the body. Since much of the food’s makeup has already been broken down, you’re making your body do less work to enjoy a product like One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps—and reap all the rewards that come with it.
Nutrition behind One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps
Brown rice that has been sprouted has elevated levels of proteins and enzymes, as well as essential compounds like anti-inflammatory magnesium, energizing vitamin B6, and fiber that keeps digestion regular and provides a feeling of fullness after eating.
These sprouted brown rice crisps are also made with organic coconut palm sugar, an alternative sweetener that has a lower Glycemic Index (GI) value. This is a standard measurement that ranks how quickly blood sugar levels will rise after a food is consumed. Concentrated sweeteners like refined sugar and aspartame have a higher GI than more natural foods. This is important for anyone trying to control or prevent diabetes.
Because organic coconut palm sugar releases into the bloodstream at a slower rate, there’s no risk of any sugar rush or sugar crash like you’d get from other sources (in fact, one serving of these rice crisps only has seven grams of sugar total).
Recipes using One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps
From a childhood favorite to grown-up trail mix, there are no shortage of ways to use these sprouted brown rice crisps.
For the kids and the kids at heart! Enjoy the classic childhood treat with some healthier substitutes that taste just as good. Ghee and Maldon salt flakes add a unique flavor, while vegan marshmallows and white chocolate add a touch of sweetness and gooey texture. Instead of regular crispy cereal, go for One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps that are not only more nutritious but will also add a bit of a chocolatey flavor from the added cacao. These sweet treats come together in ten minutes, making them a fun and easy snack you can make with the kids, too.
When you soak strawberries in honey it not only softens them but also draws out their juice in a rich sauce. Add some ginger, cardamom, and mint to the mix for even more flavor, and then top on a bed of Greek yogurt. Sprinkle some cacao crisps on top in place of the pine nuts to add a little crunch and some dark chocolate to each bite. Great as a dessert, this recipe also makes a refreshingly cool breakfast.
Custom trail mix
Whether you’re heading out for a hike or just a long day at the office, it’s always ideal to have a good snack on hand to provide a boost of energy and give you something to munch on. Create your own trail mix and store in plastic baggies to take on the go. Mix in One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps for some crunch, Thrive Market Organic Dried Cranberries for sweet and tart flavor, and Divine Organics Raw Indonesian Cashews for a salty and buttery taste. When combined, this trail mix will have a variety of textures and flavors, and less sugar and sodium than traditional store-bought brands.
While One Degree Organic Foods Sprouted Brown Rice Crisps are great on their own with a little bit of almond milk, you can also try this quick breakfast idea for even more dimensional flavor. All you need is a half-cup of Greek yogurt or coconut milk yogurt, and add whatever toppings you’d like and have on hand—fresh fruit, herbs, honey, nuts, and seeds all work great. Rich berries, like blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries work well, too, especially with the hint of cocoa in these special crisps.

I love this cereal and look forward to eating it when I have it. You would never know it gluten-free.
BEST CEREAL EVER!
I am obsessed with cereal and this cereal doesn't make me feel bad after going through a box very quickly. Plus, its a vegan/ethical brand!
I have been looking for a cereal that meets my sweet tooth needs but isn't as unhealthy as regular chocolate cereals. This cereal is really yummy and I don't feel as guilty going for a second bowl. Sometimes I'll use unsweetened chocolate almond milk and it makes for a good treat! :)

organic sprouted brown crisps cacao
This cereal has become one of my family's favorite, I love the natural ingredients and specially that they use brown rice instead of white. I don't buy cereals at all, but this one has all the ingredients that I would approve for my family.
Love this stuff!
I am on a pretty tight diet due to health issues and food allergies. This is one of the only cereals that I can have that is actually good! It tastes like coco puffs, but better, in my opinion. Plus it doesn't contain sugar cane, it is coconut palm sugar, which is one of the reasons I can have it, and love it! It doesn't taste very good dry though.
Greatest Guilt Free Breakfast Ever!!!
I REALLY HATE SAYING THIS BECAUSE THE DEMAND FOR IT AND THE PRICE WILL PROBABLY GO THROUGH THE ROOF!!! (ESP.. IF YOU LET YOUR HUSBAND AND GRAND-KIDS TRY IT) THIS IS MY SECOND ORDER AND BECAUSE I LET HUBBY GET INTO IT, MY ORDER HAS DOUBLED !!!AND THERE IS NO PLACE TO HIDE IT FROM THE GRAND-KIDS!!! HEAVEN ONLY KNOWS HOW MUCH I'LL HAVE TO ORDER THEN :)- )BEST BREAKFAST!!! TERRIFIC EVENING SNACK !!! GREAT TO ADD TO YOUR HOMEMADE TRAIL MIX !!!
GREAT PRODUCT!!!FASTEST SHIPPING!!! CAN YOU TELL HOW MUCH WE LOVE THIS STUFF?

I used these in my own version of the "heathy snickers bars" recipe found on Thrive Market site. I say my own version because I used almond butter and almonds instead of peanut butter and peanuts. While it did not taste like snickers (because of almonds) it was SO GOOD!
Great Coco Pops alternative
I like to mix it with plain rice crisps and the kids love it! Even the fussy husband thinks it tastes like coco pops and thats a first.
As cold cereals go, this one is pretty good. Remains reasonably crispy in milk and has a pretty good taste... especially when compared to other 'healthy' cold cereals go. This is one that I will keep 'in stock' for those mornings where cold cereal is desired.
Cereal has great flavor and doesn't get soggy quickly in milk - and it even turns the milk to chocolate milk, yet is good for you! Win, win!
- Regina S
Love this Cereal!
I would never imagine this was gluten-free. So tasty and delicious.
Not Coco Pebbles but Not Bad!
If you are expecting the taste of your childhood favorite sugary cereal you will be disappointed! BUT these have a light chocolaty taste, they stay crunchy to the end and they are sweet enough to taste like a treat :)
Chocolate in the morning!
This is a nice chocolatey treat in the morning. They taste great and are a nice change to the regular routine of breakfast.
Love these brown rice crispies!
My daughter and I love this cereal. It is so delicious and healthy. The crispies stay crispy and they taste just like the name brand cereal. Also, I use with cashew or almond milk and it is soooo yummy!!!
delicious cocoa puffs alternative
Great tasting cereal with crunch and just the right amount of cocoa sweetness.
Delicious, fun cereal
It's fun because, by the time you finish the cereal, you have chocolate milk. Also, it stays crisp right to the end. It's a favorite of my husband's and mine.
I use these as mix-ins in a good strawberry-banana yogurt. Yum!!
Perfect for my Chocolate Cravings
I can't believe this is as healthy as it is! It tastes EXACTLY like coco puffs!!!
So Good & Stay Crisp
I decided to try these when I stumbled across them while shopping on Thrive. I'm so glad I did. They have just the right amount of chocolate taste and sweetness and stay crisp to the last bite. I usually find I have to eat rice cereals really quickly if I don't want to eat soggy cereal, but not with these. I can eat them slowly and enjoy the flavor with no sogginess at all. These will become a regular order for me.
Almost cocoa crispies!
I'm on a very limited diet. This was a blessing! An almost chocolate experience and no 'real' sugar and GF! It tastes pretty good.
kids love it too!
This cereal is great! As a college student/broke 20 yr old, I sometimes like to have cereal for dinner or dessert but I stay away from super sugary cereal. This is the best healthy cereal I've ever had! Tastes like Coco Pops but waaaay less sugar, plus it's vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free! I was babysitting my little cousins (2 years and 5 years) and they both loved it too! It's a total dupe for traditional sugary cereal!
One of the best gluten free cereals I've tasted. I am certain your kids will love them because this kid with over 50 years experience certainly did.
Not what I was expecting
I loved cocoa pebbles as a kid--and what better than a healthy version?!? Buuuutttt this cereal was much different than what I was expecting, and not in a good way unfortunately. It wasn't a strong chocolate taste, to be honest there wasn't much flavor at all. It was a bummer. I won't be ordering these again.
Love this super crunchy chocolate cereal great on coconut ice cream
cocoa sprouted rice crisp
simply the best cereal ever!
This cereal stays crisp to the last spoonful!
Love it. Feels like a little treat!
I was skeptical but this product is great. I'm hooked. Cures my chocolate craving in a healthy way.
I go through sugary cereal cravings once in a very great while, and try so hard to just forget about it and move on. I was placing an order for some essentials and stumbled upon this item. I'm so glad I did! It was sweet enough to satisfy that nagging craving, but not overly sweet. A small bowl of this with some whole milk made a perfect, satisfying dessert at the end of a long day.
My 11 yr old daughter likes the taste of these, but didn't like how quickly they get soggy.
very yummy! Ordered 3 boxes already!
This is just slightly sweet with a great crunch. Nice for breakfast and a snack.
My kids love this cereal. I can't keep it stocked in my pantry.
Another Thrive winner
These brown rice cocoa crisps are delicious in a bowl with organic milk or making bars with them! For the gluten intolerance we have in our home these are a real treat!
This is my favorite cold cereal. We also made great krispie treats with this, grass fed butter and organic marshmallows from Thrive!
Really tasty; a great, more wholesome sub for Cocoa Crispies.
My husband said they tasted very "toasty" but to me they tasted just like my childhood favorite cereal, Rice Crispies.
simple and very yummy
I love foods with simple ingredients lists! This cereal reminds me fondly of the cereal of my youth, but it's better, because it's not too sweet - it's just right. You can really taste the cocoa, too.
Me and my boyfriend both love this cereal and I'm picky! Great find!
My Daughter Loves Them!
These were a huge hit with both of us! I hope to see more One Degree foods on Thrive.
Love it for a crunchy dessert with plain almond milk
So much better than a childhood fav
Tastes so chocolatey good!
These brown rice puffs are very similar to a childhood favorite of mine but much more healthy!! Love them. Will buy again!
I break the rule of NO chocolate for breakfast with this one! Tasty!
kids love them
My kids love sugary cereals, of course! I bought these to replace as a weekend treat for breakfast, and now they want more. I love the quality ingredients these are packed with.
I am hooked!
I have been on a very restrictive diet for some time and I was getting bored with all my regular foods. I tried this and was hooked from the first bowl! I cut up bananas in it and pour vanilla almond milk over it. It is a wonderful treat for anytime of the day! I will be a frequent buyer!
This is perfect for consumers with restrictive diets or food allergies. No corn or wheat, but note that it was produced in a facility that also manufactures soy, tree nuts and dairy. I have tried many chocolate rice cereals, and this by far is my favorite. The rice stays very crunchy, it does not taste sugary, and it pairs well with coconut milk.
- Happy Customer
Missing the cocoa taste.
This is definitely a cereal I would like my kids to eat. It is organic, gluten free, glucose free and low in sugar. However, they have been exposed to Cocoa Krispies so the faint cocoa taste in this version did not stand to their demand. I finished the rest and probably would purchase again for myself and my husband, just not as often as I was anticipating.

Yummy, chock full of nutrients
I love using this cereal to make healthier versions of rice krispy treats. They're still sugary pastries, but I try to substitute healthier ingredients into family recipes whenever I can. It's also great on it's own for a cereal, and since rice crisps are relatively neutral, I can dress these up in all sorts of ways. I can add fruit, I can add granola, I can put them in oatmeal for added crunch or eat them plain with any sort of milk. I mix them in my smoothies sometime for texture and I like them sprinkled on ice cream or in a bowl of oat milk with some matcha powder on top. They fit right in with the rest of my organic regimen. The ingredients are simple and minimal, and it's great that they're sweetened with coconut palm sugar to avoid those sugar spikes after eating.

The older you get, the more fiber you need to eat. This cereal is a staple for me every morning with my cup of coffee and letting the dogs out. It is organic and non-GMO which is super awesome!
What I wish is that I could have bought this in bulk. I would have bought a jumbo bag had I known I would eat so much of it. My grandson loves it too- that is the best part.
- Patrick Brady
I love that I can enjoy my morning cereals again! This cereal is great with any milk alternative such as almond and cashew. This cereal is organic and gluten-free and I highly recommend it!
My favorite cereal ! It tastes delicious , just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate taste. I recommended to everyone ! I want to thank you for making such amazingly delicious cereal
This is my new favorite adult cereal!! I was a bit concerned about this cereal tasting like a bowl of cardboard particles, but to my surprise it was very tasty! As other reviewers have said, it is just sweet enough. I have a sweet tooth and this cereal satisfies it without the guilt of going overboard.
Oh, it also stays crunchy in my almond milk!
This is my favorite cereal. I'm 36 years old I don't buy this cereal for my kids, I buy it for me! :) I love it! It's sweet but not too sweet so it's perfect. Really it's like a dark chocolate rice crispy and I have to have a box in the house at all times!
- The Sparkle Mama
Remember Coco Krispys as a kid, these are the adult version, without the garbage
I think they need to taste more like chocolate
Not a big hit with the kids
Unfortunately I thought this would be a good "treat" for the kids but out of 4 not one liked it. I personally did not care for the taste either.
Missing your chocolatey crunchy cereal? This will help with that. It was very yummy.
I was a little hesitated to try, but I'm so glad I did! I would recommend this for a sweet yet satisfying cocoa treat. very good!
My new favorite ceral, its like an adult version of Chocolate Rice Krispies, not super sweet. And it's sprouted so that's awesome! So delicious and great a company with great values!
Great bowl of breakfast!
This product is scrumptious! I combined them with peanut butter and banana for a healthy snack. Next up, I'm going to use them to make peanut butter protein bars.
One of my favorite cereals!
I've already bought this cereal twice! It's so addicting - nice cocoa flavour without tasting too sweet. I also love how it's made from a few, simple ingredients. Definitely going to keep on buying them!
