How to Make Chia Seed Jam (Healthy & Easy!)


Skip the refined sugars and make your own healthy Chia Seed Jam using only 4 basic ingredients! It’s perfect on toast, in oatmeal, on sandwiches, and more. Chia Seed Jam is an easy and healthy alternative to store-bought jams and jellies. It’s made with only 4 plant-based ingredients, comes together with only 15 minutes of work, and is incredibly customizable! Let’s get into it, shall we? Berries have a high water content, which is why they work so well with Chia Seed Jam. I used a combination of Strawberries, Blackberries, and Blueberries for my jam, but you can use whatever berry you have! Frozen berries work just as well as fresh, though they will increase the cooking time slightly due to their higher water content.



You’ll only need about 1/4 cup of Filtered Water to help “get things going” and steam the Berries before they naturally start to release liquid on their own. Every Berry is different, so Liquid Sweetener may be totally optional! If you are looking to completely reduce your sugar intake and have relatively sweet berries, you can leave it out. I like to add around 1 tbsp of Maple Syrup to my Chia Seed Jam – it doesn’t make it too sweet, but just sweet enough to help round all of the flavors out.

The amount of Chia Seeds you add to your Jam will determine its thickness. I prefer to have a smooth and spreadable jam, so I only added 2 tbsp. If you’re looking for a thicker “jelly,” I would suggest 3 tbsp! The good news is that you can always start with less seeds and add more if you think your jam is too runny.
