Enjoy this healthy Blueberry Compote on top of pancakes, waffles, fruit, or your favorite frozen dessert. It’s so easy! All you need are 4 ingredients and less than 20 minutes to make this amazing blueberry sauce.


  • 2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries, divided
  • 3 Tbsp of water
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon


  1. Add 1 cup of the blueberries, water, maple syrup, lemon juice, and cinnamon to a small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until the mixture comes to a boil and the blueberries start to pop and break. Usually about 8-10 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat down to a simmer and gently mash the cooked blueberries with a wooden spoon, plastic spatula, or potato masher.
  3. Add the remaining blueberries and cook for 8-10 more minutes.
  4. Serve warm.


To make a thicker sauce combine 2 Tbsp of water with 1 Tbsp of cornstarch and whisk together to make a slurry. Then slowly pour into the blueberry compote at the end of the cooking process and stir until the sauce thickens.
