No Sugar Added Blueberry Compote (Vegan, Low-Carb)

Print

I know what you’re thinking ‘yeah, yeah, great idea in theory but who actually has time to make a sugar free blueberry compote recipe on a Tuesday when they have to rush out the door for work’ well you do, that’s who! The beauty of this compote is that it takes the exact amount of time that your microwave needs to zap your porridge, meaning that all you need for this recipe is less than 3 mins, a handful of blueberries, some chia seeds and a lemon.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Chia seeds are high in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. Fiber aids in digestion and improves gut health, protein can help reduce appetite and decrease cravings, and omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
