Blueberry Chia Jam
I love jam spread on muffins, pikelets or banana bread but I really don’t like the amount of sugar that is added. I didn’t really realise this until I started to look at home made recipes and was so shocked. So I started experimenting to find the perfect spread with minimal added sugar and I found this to be perfect. You can adjust the addition of sweetner as per your taste.
