 5 ingredients. 15 minutes. Infinite possibilities. 

How vibrant and amazing does this raspberry chia seed jam look?

You can spoon it on top of pancakes (like these red velvet pancakes), cashew cream cheesecake, banana ice cream, oatmeal, smoothie bowls, chia pudding, and really anything your heart desires. 

While traditional jams are loaded with sugar, I healthified this version by swapping regular sugar for low glycemic coconut sugar, reducing the amount of it, and adding chia seeds, which further helps prevent a large blood sugar spike, and provides plenty of fiber and protein to give you long lasting energy.

Prep Time
15 min
Ingredients
  1. 2 cups frozen organic raspberries
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1/2 cup coconut sugar (granules)
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. 1/4 cup chia seed
  6. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the raspberries, water, coconut sugar and lemon juice. Stir frequently, and bring to a low boil.
  2. Next, slowly stir in the chia seeds. The berries will break down and form a slightly gel like consistency. Simmer until the jam is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon, about 10-12 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and gently stir in vanilla. The jam will last in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week.
Notes
  1. Put it in a pretty jar and give it as a cute gift!
