Blueberry Cinnamon Sauce

An easy and healthy alternative to top you and your child's morning pancakes or waffles!

Blueberry Cinnamon Sauce

- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 3 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/2 tsp pure almond extract (optional)

In a small saucepan add frozen blueberries, brown sugar, 1/2 cup water, and cinnamon. Bring contents up to a simmer. As the mixture simmers, mash the blueberries with a potato masher or the back of a spoon to break them up. Simmer for 10-15 minutes. 

Mix cornstarch in 1/4 cup water and stir until smooth. Add to blueberry mixture and continue simmering while stirring continuously for about 2 minutes until it has thickened somewhat. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract, if using.

* Makes about 1 cup blueberry sauce.
* Will keep refrigerated for up to one week.
