Easy Blueberry Jam

Another week, another great Healthy Food Friday with American Express! This month we’re celebrating Summer fun, and what better than to celebrate with a healthy kid-friendly jam that can be topped or spread on everything! Ice cream, crepes, oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, toast, or even have a spoonful plain!



Blueberries are a superfood that I simply cannot get enough of. When they are back in season I stock up weekly and when they’re just about to go out of season, I freeze a bunch for smoothies and muffins!


Say good-bye to store-bought jam loaded with preservatives and sugars. You are going to be amazed at how quickly this jam comes together, and how thick it gets! I give the credit to the chia seeds, a super healthy seed used as the thickener! 



Perfectly spreadable healthy jam! Easy as that, in under 30 minutes!
