Chia Seed Jam is my absolute favorite topping for waffles and pancakes. It’s high in fibre, easy to make, and contains healthy omega-3 fats!
This recipe has no added sugar and it really doesn't need it. The sweetness comes naturally from the berries and the thickening comes naturally from the chia seeds that gel from the juices released by the berries when they thaw.
Enjoy this jam on toast, on oatmeal to naturally sweeten, on a Greek yogurt parfait with granola, or as a colorful topping to waffles or pancakes. It's loaded with antioxidants, fiber, minerals, vitamins and omega-3 fats from the chia seeds.
You can combine the ingredients on a pot on the stove. Bring to a gentle simmer and then let stand allow the chia to absorb all of the juices!
If you prefer not to microwave you can simple combine all ingredients in the bowl and let sit at room temperature for about 3 hours, stirring occasionally for the chia seeds to absorb the thawed juices.
You can double, triple, or quadruple the recipe. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days!
