Ingredients
 

  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • ½ tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • In a small pan over medium heat add your blueberries, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Bring to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes. While simmering mash your berries with a fork. I generally mash most of them up leaving a few intact. If you like a thinner jam mash them all up.
  • 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 5-10 minutes however it will get even thicker as it sets longer.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • 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!
