Why Chia Jam?

I love so much toast with jam and coffee for breakfast. But always prefer something more healthier with less sugar. Jams is full of sugar because it’s impossible to make right consistency without large amounts of sugar and pectin. Great thanks to chefs who like innovations! We have a new product now. This is raspberry jam based on chia seeds. Chia is great gelling agent and real superfood. This is good source of omega-3 , dietary fiber and high protein content.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 1-2 tbs syrup like agave, rice or apple – if you would like a natural sweetener
  • 1.5-2 tbs Chia seeds
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

Method

Mix all ingredients. Mash the raspberries using a fork. Let jam thicken in the refrigerator for about one hour and enjoy.

If you’re still hungry…

Layer the jam with chia pudding (chia seeds hydrated in almond milk) for a delicious breakfast like this one.
