    Would really need to know the exact measurements for the raisins, sugar etc to give you the exact pts total. The below might help you work the pts out.

    weetabix 38g - 2 pts
    raisins 30g - 1pt
    Sugar White or caster 5g - 1/2pt
    SR Flour 20g - 1pt
    Milk - full fat qtr pt - 2pts
    Milk - Semi Skmd qtr pt -1pt
    Milk - skimmed qtr pt - 1/2 pt

    Thanks! I realised after I posted this that I'd need weights - doh. Sorry. Still getting head round this.

    Have had that recipe for years, it's a nice thing to have for brekkie as a wee change or if in a hurry. And as no fat in it I thought it would prob be quite WW friendly. I did use sweetener in the last one but next time I think I'd use a bit less + a banana in it to help sweeten too instead.

    So with the sweetener, divided into 6 slices it's about 1.5 pts a slice - not too bad! I will work it out more accurately next time I make it though just to make sure.

    Thanks! :) xx
