Blueberry Ginger Chia Jars

When you cook blueberries in this way, they get so sweet and jammy there's no need to add anything else... Except one of my fave ingredients - fresh ginger - to really intensify those flavours. I love the nutritional balance of chia seeds, and as I tend to stay away from grains and oats, this brekkie is my go-to when I'm craving a bircher!

  1. To make the blueberry ginger topping, heat blueberries and ginger in a small saucepan over a medium heat. Leave to bubble away until thick and jammy. Store in a jar in the fridge.
