2 – 4 people


  • 1 ½ cups blueberries
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Coles white chia seeds
  • ½ cup (125ml) water
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 4 thick slices Coles Laurent Sourdough bread, toasted


  • 2 cups roasted almonds
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt flakes



  • Place the blueberries into a small pot over a medium heat. Mix the chia seeds into the water for 1-2 minutes, or until turned into a thin gel. Add into the pot with the blueberries and bring up to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and add in the maple syrup and vanilla. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes, or until the jam has turned thick and syrupy. Remove from the heat and allow to cool before transferring into a sterilized jar.
  • For the almond butter, place the almonds and sea salt into a small food processor. Blitz for 2-3 minutes, or until the almonds have broken down into a soft butter like texture.
  • To serve, spread the almond butter onto hot toast and dollop over the blueberry chia jam.
  • *Jam will store in the refrigerator and use within 7 days.
  • *Almond butter will last as long as the used by date on the almond packet.
