Easy Chia Seed Jam Recipe
My easy and delicious chia seed jam can be made with various types of fruits. Try it as a spread on my crepes, gluten-free pancakes, and porridge.
- 1 pound fresh fruit strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
If using strawberries, nectarines, apricots, etc., slice them into small pieces. No need to do anything to small berries.
In a pot on medium heat, add the fruit, maple syrup and lemon juice. Simmer for 5-7 minutes, using your spoon to help the fruit break down.
Use a potato masher or immersion blender to puree the fruit, then turn off the heat.
Stir in the chia seeds and transfer the jam to a storage container. Place in the refrigerator to cool.
- You can use black or white chia seeds in this recipe, just make sure they're fresh. This is the brand that I use.
