Berry Chia jam is an easy and delicious alternative to store-bought jam. This jam uses no sugar and you get the added benefits of chia seeds which include fiber, protein, and healthy fats.

Berry Chia Jam is a perfect way to preserve a surfeit of these amazing fruits. The added touch here, beyond the fruit and chia seeds, is orange juice, and a little bit of maple syrup in case the berries are not sweet enough.

Complete list of ingredients with amounts and instructions is located in the recipe card below.

Ingredients

Because this recipe is so easy to make, it’s a great choice to use your fresh summer berries. It’s also ideal to make with frozen berries for other times of year.

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries of your choice
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
All ingredients on a white board.

How To Make Berry Chia Jam

  • Place berries in a bowl and microwave for 5 minutes.
  • Mash the fruit with a potato masher, a fork or the back of a spatula. You can make this as smooth or chunky as you’d like. It all depends on how you like your jam.
  • Stir in the chia seeds and orange juice. Taste the jam and then decide if you want to add sweetener. Start with one tablespoon, if desired, and adjust from there.
  • The jam will thicken as it cools. Once it has cooled, transfer into an airtight jar and store in the fridge for 1-3 weeks or up to three months in the freezer.
  • It makes about 1.5 cups
