3 Ingredient Blueberry Chia Jam

A little while back, one of my co-workers brought in chia seeds. I tried them, but I can’t say I was a fan of them in just plan ol’ water. They’re too, slimy, if you will.

However, I did some research and found out just how healthy they are for you. Not only do they provide a ton of energy, they’re full of antioxidants, and they help you feel full longer. (Read all of the healthy details here.) So, now that you’re an expert in chia seeds, you can see why these tiny energizers are perfect to start your morning off with. We’ve put together a simple 3 ingredient recipe for a jam that you can use on toast, waffles, or to sweeten up plain yogurt.

  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds

In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the blueberries and maple syrup. Give it a stir every few minutes. You’ll notice the blueberries start to “melt”. Add in the chia seeds and stir until fully combined. You can store this in a jar for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
