Granula (or Granola) First cold breakfast cereal, invented by James Caleb Jackson in Dansville, NY (1863), by baking wholemeal dough into oven‐dried bread crumbs. Also developed by John Harvey Kellogg (1877) using wheat, oatmeal and cornmeal baked into biscuits then ground (later renamed Granola as a result of legal action by Jackson).
