Raspberry Chia Jam

raspberry chia jam

If you're yet to try making chia jam then I urge you to do so- it's a revelation! Clever chia seeds help to set soft fruit into a jam-like consistency, requiring the addition of far less sugar than traditional jams and in any case, the sweetener is refined sugar free. Raspberries are probably my favourite soft fruit, hence today's recipe, but feel free to switch this up for other berries. It's so easy and is wonderful on top of porridge, pancakes, toast, etc..!

Three great health benefits: good source of Omega 3 fatty acids, good source of antioxidants, promotes healthy skin

Makes 1 small jar
Keep refrigerated

Ingredients:
300g raspberries
3 tbsp maple syrup
4 tbsp chia seeds

Method:
1) Place the raspberries and maple syrup in a small saucepan, along with 2 tbsp water. Cook over a medium heat on the hob for 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly.
2) Remove from the heat and stir in the chia seeds. Set aside to cool.
