I needed to pick up some granola and honey to make *Energy Snacks this morning, so I headed cross country to a neighboring small town's Save-A-Lot to purchase them.  I enjoyed the sights along the way on this cool, clear, crisp morning. 

I took this stealth photo out of a window of my slow-moving car.  For some reason, the old hymn Great is Thy Faithfulness came to my mind as I passed this scene.  I think it was the lines "Summer and winter, springtime and harvest; Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide.  STRENGTH for today and bright hope for tomorrow...."

It was then that I realized energy is one of the blessings I'm enjoying today...
along with ten thousand besides!
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak
...those who hope in the Lord  will renew their strength. 
 (Isaiah 40:29, 31)

1 c. peanut butter
1 c. honey
1 c. granola
1 1/2 c. powdered milk
1 c. unsweetened coconut.

Mix ingredients  in order.  Form balls (I make mine about 3/4" in diameter).  
Roll in sesame seed or coconut.  Makes between 2-3 dozen depending on size.  SO good!


  1. Oh, now energy is something I could use! I may try these. Off to add a couple of ingredients to my grocery list...

    (And "Great is Thy Faithfulness" might be my favorite hymn! I have so many, but this one is up near the top!)

    1. I hope you enjoy the Energy Snacks. One is enough to perk you up :)

      And I'm with you on "Great is Thy Faithfulness"...

  2. This beautiful photo reminds me of the ones my friend in Indiana sends me. She is surrounded by the Amish and loves it.
    The Energy Snacks sound yummy.
    Yes, a favorite hymn since I sang it in school long ago when students were allowed to do that.

  3. Beautiful photo and song...
    Sending you hugs from the Deep South. Rain rain, and more rain is in our forecast.

  4. Oh I singing..what a lovely scene and yes, Great is Thy Faithfulness!

  5. It was a beautiful morning....glad you were able to go slow and capture the moment. The energy bars sound good. Can you eat one with coffee :)

  6. We love these kinds of recipes!

    We often see Amish as we drive along our roads too.

    Love that Hymn!


  7. Scenes like that are ones I frequently enjoy here as well in southern Michigan's Amish country! Lovely!

  8. My daughter makes these and they are so yummy. Beautiful picture. "Blessings all mine..." Love the hymns!
