This easy 2-ingredient Blueberry Chia Jam is made in 10 minutes with no added sugar! This healthy, naturally sweet, antioxidant-rich blueberry jam is the best way to use up an abundance of fresh or frozen blueberries! Made with protein-rich chia seeds, it's low-carb, keto-friendly, fiber-rich, no pectin, gluten-free, and vegan! Use it as a sandwich spread, sweet filling, or topping!


  • 1 Pint of Fresh Blueberries (2 Cups)
  • 2 TB Chia Seeds
  • Sweetener (optional)


  1. Rinse the blueberries before adding them to a medium-sized sauce pot, covered. Heat them over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. When the blueberries begin to break down, release their juices, and bubble, use a potato masher or large spoon to mash the blueberries to your desired consistency.
  3. Once the strawberries are mashed, stir in the chia seeds and taste the mixture to see if it needs sweetener or your choice of other flavorings.
  4. Remove the jam from the heat and allow it to cool and thicken before giving it a final stir and pouring it into a jar to cool at room temperature before storing it in the fridge.


  • Storage: Store leftover jam in a sealed, airtight container, like a glass jar, in the fridge for up to two weeks.
  • Freeze: Freeze the jam by allowing it to cool completely and storing it in an airtight freezer-safe container or glass jar, with room to expand, for 6-8 months. Thaw it in the fridge when you're ready to use it.
  • Do not can chia jams.
  • If using frozen blueberries, allow for extra cook time for thawing and cooking off excess liquid.
  • You can add sweetener to your jam by using a few drops of stevia or monk fruit to keep it sugar-free or use liquid sweeteners like maple syrup, honey, vegan honey, etc. all to taste.
