Chia Seed Jam

Chia Seed Jam PinThis Chia Seed Jam is a nutritious alternative to the sugar and additive laden jam you buy at the store. The chia seeds give it a gelatinous texture plus a lot of additional fiber, calcium, iron and magnesium.

You can make this recipe with either fresh or frozen berries. We usually keep a large bag of frozen berries in the freezer so we never run out of this delicious condiment.

You can mash the berries with a fork or potato masher if you prefer a thicker, chunkier jam. I prefer a smoother texture so we use the blender and pulse it a few times to break down the larger berries.

We like to use this jam on our multigrain toast and as a sweetener in our Rolled Oats Breakfast.
