You are not going to believe how easy it is to make this superfood strawberry chia seed jam. Three ingredients, 10 minutes, and you have a super healthy, sweet and luscious homemade jam that is thickened with chia seeds, instead of a boatload of sugar. This is the ultimate quick and easy real food recipe.
(This post has been updated from a previously published post)
What you need for this recipe:
- Chia Seeds
- Maple Syrup (or honey)
Seriously that is all you need. Now also believe me when I tell you that it takes 5-10 minutes. This is one of those recipes that you make and then think… why oh why have I not been doing this for years?
This was another recipe born out of necessity. Yesterday I impulse purchased a $12 loaf of gluten-free bread. I am not gluten-free. I did not need bread.
I got home, kicked myself, and then went looking for jam. I wanted a thick piece of overpriced bread with butter and jam.
Went to the market.
Good quality jam without a ton of crap in it cost $8-$15 a jar.
Nope. Can’t do it.
I sulked back into my kitchen, dejected, and remembered I had a ton of strawberries left from my CSA haul.
INSPIRATION! 10 minutes later, homemade strawberry chia jam.
