Berry Chia Seed Jam Recipe!

Berry Chia Seed Jam

1lb (or about 2 cups chopped) berries

2-4 Tbs honey, maple syrup, or sweetener of choice

3 Tbs chia seeds

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

 

In a medium sized pot, add the chopped berries and honey. Heat over medium until the berries begin to sweat and breakdown. Once it cooks down a bit, add the chia seeds and stir well. Bring to a low boil and then simmer over low to medium heat for about 10 minutes.  Once it has thickened a bit, remover from heat and let cool for 10-15 minutes.  

Use right away or keep in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.

 

Excellent for adding a boost of nutrition to any recipe calling for jam or on top of toast, in oatmeal or even over ice cream!
