Healthy Blueberry Compote Topping

This Healthy Blueberry Compote Topping recipe is sweet and BURSTING with bright and fresh blueberry flavor, yet it’s secretly refined sugar free, fat free, gluten free, and vegan!

I could top just about anything with a good jam, and the same goes with fresh fruit and fruit compotes.  I chose to make this Healthy Blueberry Compote Topping because I luurrrvvv me some blueberries.  They’re like perfect little spheres of sweet, candy-like fruit.

I also decided to make this recipe because I’ve been making my Banana Buckwheat Pancakes a lot lately and I ran out of pure maple syrup.  And this Blueberry Compote?  It’s PERFECT on top of those pancakes.  Especially with a little drizzle of Sugar-Free Vanilla Bean Syrup.
