This Strawberry Chia Seed Jam needs only 4 ingredients and less than 20 minutes to come together. Vegan and gluten-free, it is also free of processed sugars and is perfect for topping cookies, toast or even straight out of the jar!
2 cups strawberries, destemmed and chopped in half
¼ cup maple syrup (optional)
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
Water as needed
Place chopped strawberries, chia seeds and maple syrup (if using) into a blender. Blend on medium to high speed until preferred jam consistency is obtained. Add water 1 Tbsp at a time as needed to get things moving.
Pour contents of blender into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat until the jam begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the jam starts to thicken.
Remove from heat and immediately pour into a mason jar. Allow to cool completely and then store in the fridge for up to one week.
