This blueberry chia jam recipe is super easy to make and not too sweet. Straight out of the blender, this jam recipe works well as a dessert sauce or over ice cream. It’s also good drizzled on waffles, oatmeal, or pancakes. Once cooled/refrigerated it will solidify to more of a jam-like consistency and be ready to spread over toast in the morning. Light, slightly sweet, and made of only natural ingredients this is an easy, guilt-free spread. With no additives you will love that you can lavish it on whatever your heart desires without having to worry about your sugar consumption. The bit of protein and fiber provided by the chia seeds is a great health benefit, as well making it a much better choice for the table than the sugar-laden, store-bought brands.

Equipment

  • Blender
  • Glass Jar(s) such as Mason jars

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries (not frozen)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup or coconut nectar (vegan) or honey
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds

Method

  1. Place blueberries into your blender container.
  2. Blend the berries on Speed 7/Medium-High speed for one minute, long enough to break up the seeds.
  3. Add liquid sweetener and chia seeds, and blend at Speed 5/Medium for 20 seconds to incorporate.
  4. Allow the mixture to sit and soak for 10 seconds.
  5. Re-blend the mixture at Speed 7/Medium-High speed for 30 seconds.
  6. Remove to a clean glass jar(s), and refrigerate for an hour or until ready to use.

Notes

This recipe makes three 8 ounce (3 x 1 cup) canning or mason jars of jam! Perfect for gift giving!
