Blueberry Vanilla Chia Seed Jam
3 cups fresh blueberries
3 tbsp maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
2 tbsp chia seeds
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
In a medium size pot, bring the blueberries and the maple syrup to a low boil. Stir frequently and reduce to low and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
While still in the pot mash the mixture lightly with a potato masher or a fork leaving some for texture.
Stir in chia seeds until thoroughly combined and cook the mixture down until it thickens to your desired consistency or about 15 minutes ensure to stir frequently.
Once the jam is thick, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Add more syrup to taste if desired.
The jam will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for at least a week.
