Blueberry-Grape Chia Jam

Makes: About 1/2 cup

Ready In: 5-10 minutes 

Good For: Breakfast


  • 1 cup fresh (or frozen, thawed) blueberries
  • 3 tsp chia seed
  • 1/3 tbsp of grape juice (not-from-concentrate)
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup (optional)


No-cook method:

  1. Combine ingredients in a mixing bowl
  2. Cover, and let defrost for about 3 hours, or in the fridge overnight
  3. After blueberries defrost and are nice and plump, mash berries to release extra juices

For a thicker jam, add a bit more chia seed, mix, and let sit for 15 more minutes. For thinner jam, add a tad more juice


Cooked method (10 minutes):

  1. Add blueberries and grape-juice to a saucepan and let cook on low-medium heat for 5-10 minutes
  2. Stir occasionally until blueberries start to burst
  3. Mash berries to release extra juices
  4. Remove saucepan from heat
  5. Add maple syrup to taste and stir
  6. Mix in chia seeds and return to boil for 1 minute to make seeds tender

For a thicker jam, add more chia seed. For a thinner jam, add a tad more juice.
Serve warm, or let cool completely and refrigerate.
