If you like the flavor of blueberries, this healthy jam is packed with nutrition and flavor! I try to keep blueberries on hand all the time since they are on the list of superfoods. We enjoy them in smoothies, by the bowl-full, and in recipes like this jam! Blueberries boost the immune system, fight free radicals, improve memory and eyesight, just to name a few.
Adding Chia seeds to this jam makes it all that much more of a super health food. Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, an excellent source of antioxidants, is high in minerals, and contains 6 times more iron than spinach.
Besides being super healthy, Chia seeds are also a thickening agent, making this jam free of pectin and having no sugar!
3 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup Chia seeds
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Place blueberries and honey in a pan and cook until juicy and blueberries soften. As the blueberries soften, I mash them the best I can. Stir in chia seeds and cook until thickened. Add vanilla and place in a jar.
Keep refrigerated. Will stay good for a week.
