Simple Raspberry Chia Jam:

A simple homemade raspberry chia jam that can be prepare in under 10 minutes. As you all know, I love making everything from scratch when I can. Because it allows me to know exactly what ingredients I am putting into my creations and it allows me to tailor it to my liking. If you haven’t tried making your own homemade chia jam before, I highly suggest you try this recipe out.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Chia seeds
  2. Zest of a orange
  3. Fresh raspberries
  4. Filtered water
  5. Optional add in: maple syrup and cinnamon sugar cookie seasoning

Steps to preparing the jam:

Using a small sauce pan, add all the ingredients into the pan, and with a wooden spoon smash the raspberries. Once the raspberries are smashed, mix, and stir throughout for about 1-2 minutes. Then add in the chia seeds and let it cook for a minute or so. Once the jam is mixed, turn off the heat, and let the jam sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.

How to store your jam:

I store my jam in a mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. That is, if it last that long in your household.

Ways to use your homemade jam:

There are so many ways I like to use my homemade jam. And one of my favorites is my rendition of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I topped some of my favorite  grain-free, gluten-free, vegan, and paleo Awgbakery bread with some of my homemade nut butter and raspberry chia jam for the ultimate toast combo.
