  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries I used 1 1/2 cups blueberries and 1/2 cup raspberries.
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or other natural sweetener (omit for Whole30 version)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch optional


  • To a sauce pot, add the berries, agave syrup, and water.  Cook on medium high heat, stirring frequently. The berries will dissolve and become juicer in the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes total until the berries are warm and jammy.
  • Stir in the cinnamon. If the compote is too watery, stir in the corn starch and cook for an additional minute until compote is thicker.
  • Top compote on pancakes, waffles, crepes, oatmeal, or french toast... and enjoy!
