Nigella Lawson Breakfast Bars

One of the things I was looking forward to doing when I moved out of home was finally cooking my way through my extensive collection of cookbooks deciding to start with Nigella Express

I start most days with a Kelloggs Special K bar so I thought I'd give Nigella's Breakfast Bars at try. Once armed with my ingredients I sat with my Weight Watchers calculator and was horrified that the recipe amounted to a whooping 81 points with each bar containing 5 points - compared to the 1.5 points in a Special K barSo what is a weight watching girl to do?

She makes them as a treat for her brother of course!

He was extremely happy (but still requested his favourite Oatmeal & Raisin cookies next time!)

  1. They do sound delicious though!!!

  2. Oh dear, how Nigella isn't the size of a house I don't know! I love several of the recipes in this book, though: pork chops with gnocchi, gammon steaks, anglo-asian lamb salad, singapore noodles, rocky road, the caramel fudge sauce for ice cream, chocolate mousse. There really are some excellent and very quick recipes. Please share any good ones you find!

  3. yum. Good old Nigella though, she cares not for calories!!

    Love that pink chair.

    ooh, the footie on Saturday. I couldn't care less about it, but I did watch some with the husband. I try to come out with some 'I really know what I'm talking about phrases', but I don't, so it's hilarious. Hate those trumpety/horn things. I said to the hubs 'what is that noise,is it a swarm of bees?' which he also found funny. But I was serious. So annoying.

    enjoy your book. I think I saw that lady on Paul O'Grady, oh for just a tiny hint of her glamour. She was very Diana Dors in the way she spoke.

  4. It's the condensed milk that makes then so naughty! I have a tin waiting to be made into a buttersctoch tart, you've just reminded me. I'm impressed you baked them and then didn't eat any!

  5. Spooky or just great minds? I have my Nigella book beside me ready yo do a post on!
    They look rather scrummy and well done on your will power.

  6. When I started reading I just thought: well of course it isn't weight watchers' Wednesday, but I see that you keep on counting everyday. That must be the secret of your succes ;-)!

  7. Love Nigella...your bars look scrummy, I must remember, you don't eat them yourself, but make them for someone else, that's where I am going wrong.....

  8. Damn you Nigella!! I've yet to get back in my baking groove. I stopped baking when I started WW because I couldn't be bothered with all the faffing. I'm just now starting to work my way through my little recipe folder and point things. Some of them have made me want to kill myself - no wonder I'm on WW!!

    But others have been quite surprising. Making some banana & chocolate cookies this week which are only 3 points each which I didn't think was too bad.

  9. Clever you, how depressing that they are so fattening!!!!

    Love Sarah x

  10. Gosh that is pretty high! Have you tried the Weight Watchers fridge cake? Mmmm delicious, though maybe not for breakfast!
    Warm Wishes,

  11. They look delicious I have always wanted to try homemade granola cereal, you have inspired me to try!

  12. I ove my Nigella books but I have also found that they are quite naughty on the old points.
    I finaly got to watch Julia & Julia and absolutly loved it. Will have to get in on dvd so i can watch it again.
    Enjoy your nigella bars.
    Luv Sophie xxx
