      THIS IS NOT 4 POINT FOR A CUP! I calculated with with honey, oil, nuts, Splenda 1/2 brown sugar and oats only, no raisins, etc. At 9 servings at 1/2 cup each, this calculates to 5.48 points, so a cup would be more like 11 points. Confused as to why the notes say 4 pts for a cup, but the recipe makes 12 servings, doesn't calculate. It's 2320 calories for the recipe I calculated - 1200 of them coming from the oats, 160 from the honey, 480 from the oil, 380 from the nuts and only 100 from the Splenda/sugar. Total fat is 106g, total fiber is 38. I'm so disappointed, I had planned to bring this in to my Weight Watchers group to share, and have made this several times for myself. BTW, I'd love to be proved wrong. This does taste delicious if you're not on a diet tho.

      I also put this in the points calculator for weight watcehrs and it is 7 points a serving on the Points plus plan. I am looking for a recipe for granola that is less points. This one does sound good. I have not tried it.

      It's a good recipe, but WAY off on the points. Putting this into the WW recipe builder--and noting that there are 7 cups of bulk items, so 7 one cup servings, the points value for one cup of this granola is 13. I love granola but I'm not going to use almost half my points on it.... even if you take out the cooking oil and use spray oil it only knocks it down to 11 points for a 1 cup serving. The recipe as-is at a half a cup is 6 points. That's fairly standard for any type of granola points.
