Description

Blueberry Pomegranate Chia Jam is seedy, lemony and full of blueberries and pomegranate arils! This jam is refined sugar-free and made with just five ingredients! It makes the perfect topping for toast, waffles or sweet breakfast bowls!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 11/2 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup pomegranate arils
  • Half a lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

Instructions

  1. In a small sauce pan, add the blueberries, pomegranate arils, lemon juice and zest and maple syrup. Bring to a low boil and let simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the fruit has softened.
  2. Remove from heat and mash the berry mixture with a fork or potato masher. Stir in the chia seeds. Cover and let sit for 20 minutes to allow the chia seeds to plump and the jam to thicken.
  3. Store in a mason jar or airtight glass container, and enjoy within 2 weeks.

Notes

  1. This recipe makes a thick and seedy jam. If you prefer your jam a little less thick and seedy, just reduce the amount of chia seeds.
  2. If you prefer your jam a little sweeter, just add more maple syrup.
  3. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries and pomegranate arils in this recipe. If you use frozen, just simmer the berry mixture for a few extra minutes.
