Strawberry Chia Jam (raw, processed sugar free)

 

I am not a big breakfast eater but what I miss from time to time is freshly baked German-style bread with lightly sweetened, homemade jam. A classic German breakfast.

When I saw a recipe for strawberry chia jam over at Om Nom Ally’s earlier this year, I knew I had to make some myself. I’ve been meaning to include more chia seeds into my diet and I finally got my hands on some organic strawberries that didn’t cost the world so here it is: My first batch of Strawberry Chia Jam!

Here are some of the amazing health benefits of chia seeds:

  • rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can help reduce inflammation and high cholesterol.
  • great source of fiber; 2 tablespoon contain about 11g of fiber which is one-third of the daily recommended intake for fiber.
  • help lower food cravings; the combination of protein and fiber contribute to their satiating effects.
  • great source of protein, calcium, manganese and phosphorus– all essential nutrients for good health.

    Thanks for sharing! I will no longer buy my jam at the grocery store. I made my strawberry chia jam last night and it’s delish! Love your recipes. :-)

    I suppose you could make this with any berry? It sounds great. When you say refrigerate 3-5 days, is that 3-5 days and then you eat it or hurry up and eat it in 3-5 days? Thank you!

      Hi Jenn! I’m glad you asked. Sorry if that’s unclear; I meant hurry up and eat it within 3-5 days! :)

    Two questions:

    1. Can this be made say with peaches? I assume any other berries also.
    2. Can this be canned as you would can jam?
