Blueberry Maple Compote; breakfast & dessert!

This Blueberry Maple Compote couldn’t be easier to make, it’s a true Instant Pot Dump and go recipe.  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.

Not Just for breakfast!

I highly recommend you make a double batch of this delicious fruit compote, it’s got so many uses, keeps well in the fridge for up to 10 days, and is a great way to get some added fruit servings into your diet.

Breakfast Suggestions: 

  • Topping for pancakes and waffles, French Toast
  • Serve with fresh fruit and steel cut oats

  • Blueberry Maple Vinaigrette
  • Blueberry Maple Cream Cheese Dip; serve with fruit and

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Come to pressure 8 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 3 cups


  • 3 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ¼ c. real maple syrup
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ t. salt


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