    The mix is very good, a batch portioned off into 1/3 servings makes part of my breakfast for 5 days, if I want some for a snack then I make 2 batches. The 2nd time I ran out of almonds so I used cashews.

    @Mary—Thank you for pointing this out! The nutrition information is for a 1/3 cup serving size—the instructions have been clarified to portion into 1/3 cup servings.

    I am a bit confused on this recipe. Nutritional info says “1/3-cup serving”, yet recipe instructions say to package it in “1/2-cup servings.” Which is correct? 1/3-cup or 1/2-cup??
