Theme: Kid’s Delight — Healthy Breakfasts
Dish: Blueberry Chia Jam
For today’s ‘Kid friendly Healthy Breakfast’, I made an easy and nutritious Blueberry Chia jam. I bought chia seeds on a whim from Trader Joe’s, but I haven’t used it much yet except in smoothies.
This jam recipe is from Vegetarian Times magazine. Adding the chia seeds makes the jam thick and glossy. Jam is sweetened with maple syrup and little goes a long way in this recipe. It is super simple to make and needs about 20~25 minutes hands-on time. It stays fresh in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
My kids and I have been eating this jam with just about everything — bread, roti, over cereal and so on. Swirl it into yogurt and it makes an excellent breakfast or an afternoon snack.
