Blueberry Chia Seed Jam
Yield: about 1 cup
Prep: 5 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
2 cups frozen blueberries
2 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
dash of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
In a small pan over medium heat add your blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Bring to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. While simmering smash up about half of the blueberries.
Remove from the heat add chia seeds, maple syrup and lemon juice and stir to incorporate together.
Let the mixture cool down and gel up. It will be thick enough to use within 10 minutes however it will get even thicker as it sets longer.
*A dash simply means a light sprinkle or a pinch. Nutmeg is a pretty strong flavor so you do not want to add too much of this ingredient.
*If the jam is not sweet enough for your preference you can add another tablespoon of maple syrup.
*I like to only mash half of the blueberries and keep some whole if you want a smoother jam simply mash all of the berries.
*This is perfect served on an english muffin, toast, on PB & J or even in a big bowl of oats!
