Nothing like a simple yet satisfying spread to start afresh and keep you fueled through the day. It's interesting to know that the first breakfast cereal, created by Dr. James Caleb Jackson in 1863 and called 'Granula', was made with bran nuggets that had to be soaked overnight to make it chewable!
