Plum Strawberry Chia Compote

My oatmeal or pancakes are just incomplete without homemade fruit compote. This plum strawberry chia compote recipe is perfect for fall season; loaded with the goodness of fresh fruits and chia seeds; sweetened with honey and brown sugar.plum strawberry compote

Compote are my new obsession after fresh fruit chutneys, I am making seasonal compotes now for a while. I hardly buy any sort of fruit preserve or jams. My homemade compotes are free of any additives; also I am well aware of all the ingredients that I am using for my compote recipes. Using various spices and seeds gives a different texture to the compote and most of the times introduces a health factor. I love using chia seeds in compotes as they help in making compotes thick and obtain jam like texture. This plum strawberry chia compote can be easily used as a spread for muffins, toasts, tortilla, biscuits or scones.plum compote

I love adding compote to my porridge and this simple compote along with some nuts and seeds makes my oatmeal or breakfast porridge complete. Compotes can be a hearty addition to parfaits or cake toppings. Once you start making compote at home you will stop serving premade fruit spreads; as these are ready within few minutes without any extra efforts. These are so perfect for kids and toddlers as you can adjust the amount of sugar and avoid any other extra flavours, colours and additives.plum strawberry chia compote

I have used fresh strawberries for my compote recipe, but you also use  any frozen berries of  your choice. Also as fresh plums are in season so I have used prune plums; but any stone fruit can work for this recipe. For sweetness I have added brown sugar and honey, you can use any sweetener of  your choice, for vegan version just replace honey with agave nectar or maple syrup. You can also try my strawberry compote with ginger and chia seeds if you like the hint of ginger in your dessert topping or try blueberry orange compote for citrus compote recipe.plum2
