Wikipedia: Granola
Granola is a food consisting of rolled oats, nuts, seeds, honey or other sweeteners such as brown sugar, and sometimes puffed rice, that is usually baked until crisp, toasted and golden brown. The mixture is stirred while baking to avoid burning and to maintain a loose breakfast cereal consistency. Dried fruit, such as raisins and dates, and confections such as chocolate are sometimes added.

thankfully, this granola bar only looks like particle board; it tastes much more like cardboard.

Are granola bars and particle board the same material? And if so, which application came first?

The way granola bars are compressed reminds me of particle board.
