Chia seed jam is the perfect thing to have on hand when you need some a little sweet. A mix-in for yogurt, a topping for your 0 net carb crackers, or straight off the spoon!
8 oz fresh or frozen raspberries (blackberries work as well!)
2 tbsp sweetener (I prefer ChocZero syrup or Swerve)
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon juice (optional: I like mine a little on the tarter side!)
What To Do
Bring the berries, sweetener of choice, water and lemon juice (if you using) to a simmer in a pot over medium heat. Mash the berries down and let simmer for a few minutes. Turn off the heat and add in the vanilla and chia seeds. Stir and let setup for about 20 minutes. Give a good stir again and then transfer into an airtight container (I usually use a glass mason jar). Let the jam rest in the fridge for about two hours and enjoy!
