How to make a simple blueberry compote
For the blueberry topping, you’ll need blueberries, lemon juice, maple syrup, and chia seeds. You cook the blueberries in a small pan with the rest of the ingredients, and let it simmer until you’re left with a thick, blueberry jam.
Chia seeds are highly nutritious, and provide omega-3 fats and a little protein to your meals. They’re an easy nutrition boost to add to your smoothies or oatmeal, and play a vital role in thickening up the compote for these blueberry pie oatmeal bowls.
