As the New Year approaches, wait - when did that happen, it is time to think about wellness and new beginnings.  I love this time of the year for that very reason, NEW.  A new time, a new beginning, new goals, new hopes, new adventures for the New Year.  As we reach 2017, I want to make sure that the people in our lives who have made the last year even better know how much we are thankful for them and want them to be well in the new year.

Honey Facts:

Did you know that Honey is packed full of wellness qualities?  It's true.  As I started to think about some recipes and tutorials to add to a Wellness Basket I immediately thought of honey.  Honey is not only delicious in teas, baking and DIY salts/lotions but it is the perfect item for wellness. 

  • Honey is a natural source of energy.
  • Honey is a natural cough suppressant.
  • Honey never goes bad.
  • Honey comb can be eaten.
  • Honey is best at room temperature - Storing honey in the refrigerator accelerates the honey’s crystallization.


Don Victor® Honey is my favorite honey to enjoy.  When I was first introduced to Don Victor® Honey I was shocked that the Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar came with honey comb.  I honestly, had no idea that you could eat the comb but now I am hooked.

I love using the Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar for gifts.  The jar is so pretty and I simply add some mini honey dippers to the jar and it is a gift in itself!  But for this special basket I decided to not only bake some yummy Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread using Don Victor® Honey but I also included an additional bread mix in a jar plus a jar of Don Victor® Honey.

This Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread is a nice hearty filling bread with whole wheat, oats and honey - wellness baked in!  One way I love to enjoy this bread is with some of the mashed up honeycomb on a slice of bread. Simply toast the bread and spread the honeycomb on the bread, the honeycomb will soften a bit.

To build the Wellness Basket I found some nice bright kitchen towels, a large mason jar and a good size basket to carry it all in.  I am a bit obsessed with making "in a jar" baked goods.  It is a great way to have pre-measured mixed all ready to bake.  I simply added all of the dry ingredients to the jar one by one.  Leaving out the yeast as that ingredient must be added to the liquid ingredients.

Looks pretty right?  To complete this Wellness Basket I added a Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Jar, mini honey dipper, a package of yeast, the Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread in a jar to the basket and a loaf of freshly baked Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread.  Make sure you also add the recipe print off for the recipient so they can add the correct liquid ingredients to their bread mix.

Anyone that receives this Wellness Basket will be ready for a great New Year.  Freshly baked bread with great wellness properties and some extra honey for those sick days. 

To create your own Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread in a Jar Wellness Basket make sure you shop at Walmart and head to the Hispanic Food aisle to pick up a few jars of Don Victor® Honey.

  5. What a brilliant idea for a gift! I know a lot friends who don't mind cooking but hate following recipes. This way they just mix the ingredients and they're good to go!

  6. I cannot wait to try your bread recipe! I am a bread maker so I'm always looking for new recipes that my family will love. I've seen this honey at my local store and wondered how good it was. So neat that it comes with the honeycomb, too!
