This Blueberry Chia Jam is delicious, easy, and quick to make. You can make a fresh batch in the morning and enjoy it with your breakfast! Add it to a smoothie bowl, oats, yogurt, bread; the possibilities are endless!
Most of the store-bought jams won’t have chia seeds in them, and that’s a shame! Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium!
Blueberry Chia Jam Substitutions
- Chia seeds – you can use flaxseeds instead or mix both.
- Honey – can be substituted with maple syrup or agave.
If you like your jams sweet, you might need to add more honey. The amount of honey in this recipe will give a hint of sweetness to the jam, but it won’t make it too sweet. Try first, then adjust to your preferences.
Can you use frozen blueberries to make this recipe?
Absolutely! You can use frozen blueberries or wild berries in the same amount as fresh ones.
This Blueberry Chia Jam is healthy and kid-friendly and can be topped or spread on everything! Ice cream, crêpes, oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, toast, or even have a spoonful plain! Say goodbye to store-bought jam loaded with preservatives and sugars.
You can double or even triple the recipe if you want to get more jam. For me, this small batch is perfect. I can enjoy it fresh before it goes bad. And since it is so quick to make, I can just make it fresh whenever needed.
