Easy + Healthy Blackberry Chia Jam Recipe
I’ve recently been loving making chia jams! So quick and easy to make and so delicious. The best part about making your own is that you can control exactly what goes in to it. Store brought jams are typically full of sugar and are not healthy at all.
This blackberry chia jam is full of protein, fibre and omega-3’s from the chia seeds, combined with antioxidants and nutrients in the blackberries.
You can make this chia seed jam with just about any fruit, I love blueberry, apricot, nectarine, cherry and strawberry.
I’ve been eating mine on my gluten-free sourdough bread slathered with almond butter. Such a yummy combination. I’ve also stirred this into porridge and that’s really delicious too.
