Healthy, delicious, and satisfying!
You’ll want to smother this jam on everything!
Toast, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, yogurt, you name it.
Trust me when I say you’ll never want to buy a store bought jam ever again!
I don’t know about you, but I don’t love all the extra sugar and additives that are in a typical store bought jam.
I prefer to have a sweet and tangy jam. One that’s packed with healthy fats, fiber, and fresh berries!
I made this a couple days ago and the jar is already half gone. I can’t get enough of it, and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way!
Let’s get to the recipe.
Raspberry Chia Seed Jam
- 3 cups fresh raspberries
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp water
- 1 tsp pure vanilla
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 tbsp agave
How to make…
Step 1: In a saucepan on medium-low heat bring the raspberries, lemon juice, and water to a simmer. Allow it to simmer until all the berries are completely broken down. (Sometimes I help this process along by using a masher. I don’t know if that’s the technical term for it, but that’s what I call the instrument used to mash potatoes, or in this case, berries.) This process should take about 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: Add in the agave, vanilla, and chia seeds. Let simmer for 2 more minutes.
Step 3: Remove from heat and allow the jam to sit for 20 minutes. The longer it sits the thicker it will get.
Step 4: You can either use the jam immediately or store it in a mason jar to use for another day.
- Store the jam in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator for 1 1/2 weeks or 10 days.
