4-Ingredient Berry Vanilla Chia Seed Jam
Serves: 1 cup
  • 3 cups fresh blueberries (or sub in any kind of berries)
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. In a medium-sized pot, bring the berries and maple syrup to a light simmer. Reduce heat to medium low, stirring frequently, and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes. Mash the berries with a potato masher or fork. Leave several berries whole for added texture.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds until thoroughly combined and cook the mixture for about 15 minutes, or until it thickens to desired consistency. Stir frequently so that the jam doesn’t stick to the pot.
  3. Once the jam has thickened up, remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. The jam should keep for at least a week in an air-tight container in the fridge or store jam in freezer for later use.
