Strawberry Chia Seed Jam
This strawberry chia seed jam is made in 15 minutes using just three simple ingredients - strawberries, chia seeds, and a smidge of maple syrup!
- 2 cups chopped strawberries
- 2-3 tsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
Place the strawberries in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries have started to break down and release their juices.
Mash the strawberries with the back of a fork or a potato masher. (You can decide how smooth/lumpy you’d like it to be – I like mine with some lumps of strawberries still in there).
Stir in the maple syrup, cook for another minute or so, and then remove from heat.
Mix in the chia seeds and let sit for 5-10 minutes. The jam will thicken up. Store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days (but trust me, you’ll find yourself wanting to use it on everything!).
