Easy to Make Instant Pot Blueberry Compote


This Instant Pot blueberry compote is so easy to make, and you’ll make this a part of your new breakfast addition. Classic compote recipes include large amounts of white sugar, but this version relies on a more modest amount of real maple syrup for a bit of sweetness. Although this recipe uses fresh blueberries, lemon juice, and cinnamon, feel free to add any combination of fresh berries, citrus juice, and seasonings to create your own tasty flavor variations.

This blueberry compote goes fabulous over waffles, pancakes, and so much more. You can even pour over a fabulous pork tenderloin if you want. If you make my Instant Pot Steel Cut Oats recipe, then you can EASILY add this on as a fabulous topping.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 13 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes

This Instant Pot Blueberry Compote is easy to make, and goes great with so many different foods!


  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


1.   Add all ingredients to Instant Pot container and stir to combine. Add the lid and lock into position.

2.   Set the pressure valve to the “Sealing” position and press the “Manual” button. Adjust the setting to high and select 3 minutes for the cook time. After a brief pause, the Instant Pot will automatically start building pressure at this point.

3.   When the cook time has finished, turn the Instant Pot off to prevent scorching. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release the remaining pressure by carefully moving the valve to the “Venting” position.

4.   Optional: To thicken the compote, select the “Sauté” function and cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until excess liquid is reduced. Turn the Instant Pot off and immediately remove container from the unit to cool.


Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days. Serve over ice cream, yogurt, waffles, French toast, pancakes, oatmeal, pound cake, cheesecake, or rice pudding with a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!

  1. This recipe is exactly what I was looking for this morning. I have a quart of beautiful fresh blueberries that have been around for a few days and really need to be used. All the other recipes I found for blueberry jam or compote had lots of sugar! I knew I could trust you to come up with a WW friendly recipe. Oh, and by the way, I saw that your cookbook is out and I just ordered it on Amazon! Your recipes are always amazing.
