I have developed an unhealthy obsession with the M&S granola and yoghurt pots and at £1.30 a pop it is not doing my bank balance any good.

So I've made Nigella's and it is yummy, recipe here. I am going to eat it with yoghurt tonight. Helpfully Julian Graves near me has an everything half price sale on so I got a few of the ingredients there. By the way the raisins are supposed to go in after you've toasted the granola. Don't forget or you will spend 15 minutes picking them out of a honey, syrupy, oat mixture!

looks delicious

I have nigella brownies n the oven atm, just made them with dd.

I should try the granola though, it is expensive to buy and I love it for breakfast with berries and mango and yoghurt.

It's yummy, plus you can tailor it. I didn't put almonds in as I don't like nuts, and next time I might put some coconut in.

yes it is nice isn't it. I found it hard to track down one of the ingredients - malt rice syrup or something, can't remember. Did you use this or go for the "or you can use golden syrup" option?

Her breakfast bars are lovely too. Easy, cheap, healthy & filling - I love 'em!

I used golden syrup G&T as I had some in the cupboard, didn't even try and look for the other stuff.

I'll have to check the breakfast bars out.

I have a lovely granola recipe that uses maple syrup.

Is it healthy? As in low fat? I have an addiction to Muller Crunch Corners but this looks better to me. Plus I am bored with Shreddies in a morning...
