Notes

This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of each ingredient for 2 reasons:
  1. I find this is the right serving size for me based on my personal calorie needs.
  2. It fits perfectly in my favorite container!
 
For most people, 1/2 cup of each ingredient is the standard serving size though. Just make sure you keep an equal ratio of oats to milk in order to get the oats properly saturated with liquid. The rest (greek yogurt, honey, berries and nuts) is entirely at your discretion.
