Chia jam is one of those things that I like to make every now and then to add to oats, buckwheat pancakes, or as a tasty layer to a chia puddings. A great refined sugar free alternative to traditional jam, this is baby is packed full of goodness including omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fibre, iron, and calcium.

Time: 15 min | Serves: 10

1 tbsp honey or maple
½ tsp vanilla
1½ tbsp chia seeds
INSTRUCTIONSCook the berries in a saucepan over medium heat, stir gently.
Add the honey and vanilla and stir until combined. Remove from the heat and transfer to a blender to blitz into a liquid.
In a medium jar, combine the berry mixture with the chia seeds and allow it to cool completely.
Once the jam has reached room temperature transfer it to the fridge for an hour to set.
Store in an air tight jar in the fridge for up to one week.
