Breakfast Ideas with Blueberries Chia Jam - #breakfastseries


In case you missed, I have these #breakfastseries posts on my blog for quite some time whereby I post recipes perfect for brekkie or light brunch. :)

This time round - after weeks of creating recipes, snapping & editing photos, and drafting this blog post - I now present to you these easy breakfast ideas with blueberries chia jam.

I have ditched store-bought-sugar-filled-jam-bottles and make my own fresh chia jam with fruits in small batches, to be consumed within 3 days when kept in the fridge.

Here you go! Hope you enjoy these breakfast ideas; they are great for little ones too. :)



Blueberries Chia Jam

Ingredients:
(Yields about 1 cup)

2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

How to:

1. Put chia seeds in a small bowl, add 4-5 tablespoons of water and stir to combine. Let chia seeds sit until water is absorbed and mixture becomes soft, about 10 minutes.

2. Lightly cook blueberries with maple syrup over low heat for about 10 minutes. The berries should be slightly burst by then. Mash them up with a fork. Set aside to cool for about 10 minutes.

3. Spoon the hydrated chia seeds into the berry mixture and stir to combine, using fork to break up lumps of chia until evenly combined. Let sit for 30 minutes in the fridge to allow the mixture to thicken into a jam-like consistency.



Yogurt Buttermilk Pikelets
(served with Blueberries Chia Jam)

Ingredients:
(Makes 20-22 pikelets)

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon molasses sugar
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 egg

How to:

1. In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and molasses sugar until well combined.

2. In another bowl, mix together yogurt, buttermilk, and egg. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients.

3. Heat up a frying pan and lightly grease with vegetable oil. Scoop one tablespoon of batter by using the measuring spoon set's tablespoon onto the hot frying pan.

4. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.

5. Layer the pikelets with blueberries chia jam and stack them up.



Pancakes with Yogurt & Chia Jam

This is really simple. Just make your favorite pancakes / pikelets. Serve them with your favorite yogurt (plain or Greek is good). Then, spoon some chia jam on top. Add dried blueberries to boost your daily intake of antioxidants. :)



Breakfast Crepes

Ingredients:
(Makes 9 crepes) 

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon molasses sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/2 cups whole milk
4 large eggs
3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil

How to:

1. In a blender, combine flour, molasses sugar, salt, milk, eggs, and oil. Blend for about 30 seconds until mixture is smooth. Let the batter sit for 15-20 minutes at room temperature before cooking.

2. Heat a 12-inch non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly coat with cooking oil. Pour about 1/3 cup of batter into the pan. Tilt and swirl until the batter covers the base evenly.

3. Cook until the edge of the crepe begins to curl and the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a rubber spatula and flip to cook the other side until done. Repeat with remaining batter.

4. To serve, spread crepe with chia jam and fold.

Another way of eating crepes (more suitable for adults, not kids): Spread the crepe with Nutella (or any nut butter), put a banana in the middle, roll and cut into chunks. :)
