Strawberry Chia Jam

I don’t use a lot of jam so whenever I want to make some, I just make a small batch. And for this, this Strawberry Chia Jam is perfect because it takes only 10 minutes and you’ll only need 3 ingredients.

I try to cut out white sugar wherever possible and that’s why I used maple syrup for this jam. You can use of course any sugar you prefer (coconut, brown, agave syrup, whatever is out there).

This small-batch Strawberry Chia Jam is perfect to add on toast (pb&j time!), on overnight oats, pancakes, or in crepes. I just love how simple and versatile this recipe is!

How to make Strawberry Chia Jam

The ingredients

You will need:

  • frozen strawberries (you can also use fresh strawberries or other fruits)
  • maple syrup (you can also use your favorite sweetener instead)
  • chia seeds (they help thicken it up, you will not taste them)

The basic steps

Step 1: Place the frozen strawberries in a pot, and add the maple syrup. Bring it to a boil.

Step 2: Once the strawberries are super soft, mash them with a fork (you can leave them chunky or mash until completely fine, you can even use a hand blender to blitz it up). Add the chia seeds, stir, let it cook for another 2 minutes.

Step 3: Let it cool off (it will thicken more when cold) or store it in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Your questions answered

Can you make this with different fruits? Yes, yes you can. I’ve already made it with blueberries and raspberries. It works with pretty much all fruits – frozen or fresh.

Are the chia seeds necessary? The chia seeds help thicken it up! So they aren’t necessary, but strongly recommended!

How long will it last? Use an air-tight container, store it in the fridge for up to 2-3 weeks.
