chia seed jams

60 second chia jams (vegan, pectin free, gluten free AND delicious!) (3)

hi friends! today i’m sharing with you a really yummy and super easy recipe for chia seed jam. i made three different kinds yesterday in less than 10 minutes! thanks to the the gel-ifying goodness of chia seeds, these jams have only a few ingredients and are vegan, pectin free, gluten free, super easy AND delicious!

you’ll quickly see that the recipe is pretty simple. feel free to play around with substituting different kinds of berries and sweeteners (honey, agave, maple syrup, etc). you can also play with adding different flavorings, spices and citrus notes!

- 1 tbs warm water
- 1 tbs maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp maple flavoring

directions:

since blueberries have a more mild taste, i think adding the vanilla really seemed to round this one out well. it turned out to be sweet, summery and super yummy.
