Chia Seed Jam
This chia seed jam is a delicious and healthy alternative to store-bought jam! It is much lower in sugar, yet it's sweet, delicious, and made with your favorite fruits. Plus, it is super quick and easy to make!
Servings: 12 servings
- 2 cups fruit fresh or frozen
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoon maple syrup or another sweetener of choice
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Add the fruit to a pot and let it simmer over medium heat until it starts to break down.
Mash the fruit with a potato masher, then turn off the heat. Add the lemon juice and maple syrup.
Stir in the chia seeds. Transfer the chia seed jam to a storage container and let it cool. Then store it in the refrigerator.
- Fruit: You can use this recipe with any type of fruit that is juicy. I love to make berry jam, bur feel free to make the kind of jam you love. If you use larger fruits, cut them into smaller pieces before making the jam.
- Sweetener: The amount of maple syrup you'll need depends on how sweet the fruit you use is. Feel free to add more or less maple syrup to taste!
