Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes


  • A small pot
  • A mason jar or a medium size serving dish


  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup chia seeds or more for a jam texture - see notes


  • Place the frozen blueberries in a small pot and cook on medium-high heat until the blueberries are starting to thaw and are releasing some liquids.
  • Add about ¼ cup water and simmer until blueberries are softened and starting to break.
  • Add ¼ cup honey or maple syrup, stir and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Add ¼ cup chia seeds, mix and set aside to thicken for about 20 minutes.


This sauce can be thickened and used as a jam by adding more chia seeds - Instead of ¼ cup consider ½ a cup.
This sauce or jam is best fresh but leftovers can be kept in the fridge and eaten within a day or two.
