I'm going to start off by saying I won't tell you how much this meal is worth WW-wise. Way too much. But it's delicious, so there.
You don't have to be a genius to know I nicked the idea of this granola recipe from Nigella. But she nicked it from some guy named Andy in Fairfield, Connecticut, so I don't feel as bad. :)
I love Nigella's granola recipe. I don't make it often enough but was suddenly inspired this past Sunday for some reason.
I used the items from my cupboard that I thought would taste fab in this granola, and I wasn't wrong. The only bad thing about this granola is that it is a lot more calorific than you would expect granola would be. But it's all natural ingredients, so that is one reason to eat it. Or at least that is the reason I'm using to justify my endless need to eat it all the time!
