This blueberry compote is one of my favourite quick and easy kitchen tricks to whip up when something is in need of a sweet kick. It can be added to granola bowls, mixed with yoghurt, drizzled on banana bread or my favourite at the moment in chilly Melbourne is to add a dollop on top of a warm bowl of porridge. A simple way to add some additional fibre and nutrients to your diet.
This can be prepared and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days or can be quickly whipped up as needed. The best thing about it is that there are only 3 ingredients!
2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries (I use frozen)
1tsp maple syrup/honey
Add the blueberries, sweetener of choice and 1tbsp of water to a pot over a medium heat.
Continue to gently stir over medium heat for 10-15 mins, adding the second tbsp of water if necessary (this may not be necessary if using frozen berries).
The blueberries will break down slowly into a lovely glossy compote.
Leave cool to a warm temperature before adding to your porridge or banana bread. Or cool completely before adding to yoghurt or granola bowls.
Leftovers can be put in a sterilised jar and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
