blueberry jam

Blueberry jam made without adding sugar? Yup, you read right! As you know, my husband and I picked many gallons worth of fresh, juicy, and insanely delicious blueberries last weekend:

You don’t pick this many blueberries (& more) and just let them sit on the counter. I have been trying to get creative with my blueberry recipes.

So, today I came up with this: healthy, no sugar added, blueberry jam! Who doesn’t love a healthier alternative to a breakfast staple?!

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tbsp raw honey (not “sugar” 😉 )
1 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp water

Directions:
1. In a small dish, combine the chia seeds in the water and let them soak for 12 minutes.
2. Now, add the blueberries, honey, and the now gel-like chia seeds to a Nutribullet, or blender. Blend for about 20 seconds.
3. It will appear to be quite liquid-y immediately, but once you put it in your container of choice and then let it sit in the fridge for a few hours, it will become more of a jam consistency.
4. Spread it on some bread, and enjoy!
