This low-carb blueberry chia jam is such a great way to enjoy berries. You'll only need a few ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make it. It's a tasty addition to our low-carb jams made with low sugar fruits including strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, rhubarb and cherries.
Blueberries are naturally sweet so you can keep it sweetener-free or use healthy low-carb sweeteners such as erythritol, Swerve, allulose, stevia or monk fruit.
Wild blueberries, which are typically smaller and less sweet than cultivated blueberries, are a better option for keto as they are high in antioxidants and contain less sugar. It may not be possible to find fresh wild blueberries but you can get them frozen — both fresh and frozen will work in this chia jam.
Serve this sugar-free jam just like your regular blueberry jam; with full-fat yogurt, coconut yogurt or sour cream, or on a slice of freshly baked keto bread. You can even use this chia jam as topping in all sorts of keto desserts like panna cotta, cheesecakes, cupcakes and pies. Enjoy!
