Blueberry Lemon Chia Jam – A delicious blueberry spread with just a dash of lemon made with only 4 ingredients that takes just 15 minutes to make! This healthy chia jam is the perfect addition to any breakfast routine!
Originally, when I made the Easy Raspberry Chia Jam, it was going to be this one but then I found raspberries on sale and changed course. This time was the opposite, huge things of blueberries were on sale so of course I got them, planning to make something tasty! I thought about adding them to the Lemon Sweet Rolls I was making this week but then decided this would be an even better idea! Peanut butter and jam sandwiches are what I eat for lunch each day so this chia jam got devoured pretty quickly!
The combination of blueberries and lemons in this blueberry lemon chia jam was absolutely perfect. The balance of sweet and tart worked out so well and if the addition of chia seeds scares you, fear not! They have the same texture as a berry seed so if that doesn’t bother you, then you are good to go! They are a healthy addition and helps thicken the jam to make it the correct consistency. I can’t wait to try other variations of this jam because it is so awesome! I think next might be strawberry rhubarb or blackberry. Honestly, I started even eating this blueberry chia jam by the spoonful because it was such a tasty snack to quickly grab after class when I was waiting for my coffee to brew!
