Why is Homemade Raspberry Jam Healthy

The classic PB&J is sweet and tart from the fruity jam and deliciously nutty from the peanut butter – a potent combination!

However, store-bought jams or jellies are often packed with sugar and additives in order to preserve their shelf-life.

But don’t worry, I’ve got you with this 2-ingredient homemade berry chia jam as a healthy alternative.

How to make Chia Jam

Instruction on how to make raspberry chia jam step by step.

The only 2 ingredients you will need are some chia seeds and frozen berries of your choice.

In order to make this delicious “berry” chia jam, all you need is to bring 1 cup of water to boil and gently mash 1/2 a cup of berries in and mix well.

Once the mashed berries are mixed in with the hot water, turn off the heat and add 1 heaping tbsp of chia seeds and stir well.

Additionally, if you prefer sweeter, you can add some honey or maple syrup (vegan option).

Let the berry chia jam sit for 10 minutes until the chia seeds completely soak up the liquid and expand, simulating the gelled texture of the store-bought fruit jam.

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
