I love how easy these come together. In this recipe, we are using the frozen blueberries straight out of the bag! These bars are the perfect combination of crust and fruit topping. They are a hit all year long.

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!

Easyblueberryjam

 

Say goodbye to store-bought jam loaded with preservatives and sugars.

This jam is free of refined sugars and such a fabulous healthy alternative to traditional jam.

You are going to be amazed at just how quickly it comes together and how thick it gets!

I give the credit to the chia seeds, a super healthy seed used as the thickener!

This jam is also so customizable! Want to add more fiber? Toss in ground flaxseeds! Want to add more lemon flavor? Add some lemon zest! You can even switch up the fruit and make this with strawberries or raspberries if you want to try another flavor!

My go-to spreadable jam recipe all Summer long!

Everything is better as a donut, right? I recently bought a donut pan and am absolutely loving it. I’ve been making tons of healthy treats and serving them in the form of donuts; which is definitely surprising to my family and friends! These were fabulous. I kept them in the fridge and ate them as a protein snack throughout the week.
