Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


3 cups fresh blueberries
3-4 tbsp pure maple syrup, to taste (or other liquid sweetener)
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp pure vanilla

*In a medium-sized non-stick pot, bring the blueberries and 3 tbsp of maple syrup to a low boil

*Stir frequently, and reduce heat to low-medium to simmer for about 5 minutes

*Lightly mash the blueberries with a potato masher or fork, leaving some for texture

*Stir in the chia seeds until thoroughly combined and cook the mixture down until it thickens to your desired consistency, or about 15 minutes

*Stir frequently so it doesn’t stick to the pot

*Once the jam is thick, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla - add more maple syrup to taste if desired

Recipe Tips:

*Enjoy on toast, English muffins, oatmeal, vegan overnight oats, oat bars, tarts, cookies, banana soft serve, smoothies, and more

*The jam should keep for at least a week in an air-tight container in the fridge
