Easy Strawberry Chia Jam

 This Easy Strawberry Chia Jam is a sweet and healthy treat to top your toast. The jam only has 4 ingredients and takes less than 20 minutes to make! 

I used to love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches when I was a kid. I had one for lunch every day in grammar school – yes, EVERY day.

To make it easier to prepare lunch, we even got that stuff that had the peanut butter and jelly in one jar (I think it was called Goober or something – let me know if you know what I’m talking about).

After grade school I got sick of pb & j so I moved on to more sophisticated lunches such as french fries – no I was not the healthiest of eaters back then.

I actually can’t remember having a peanut butter and jelly sandwich between 8th grade and this year… but then I made my easy strawberry chia jam and I’ve been loving pb & j sandwiches again!

The idea of chia jam has been around for a while but I just started testing some of my own recipes lately. Basically, you just heat up some fruit, add a little sweetener and throw in some chia seeds – how easy is that?

Easy Strawberry Chia Jam

Traditional jam contains loads of sugar so I wanted to make a healthier version. I used a little maple syrup to sweeten the jam, but the fruit is so sweet, it didn’t need much.

My easy strawberry chia jam comes packed with other nutritional benefits too! Chia seeds are high in omega-3s which help calm inflammation. They also contain fiber, protein, phosphorus, and calcium.

Using Chia Jam

Besides sandwiches, I use this easy strawberry chia jam to top my vegan yogurt and smoothie bowls. I also use this jam to make my Strawberries & Cream Overnight Oats.

This could also be a great option for kids because of the low sugar. If you have peanut allergies in the school, almond butter is another good choice – actually, that’s what I use most of the time so I should be saying “a & j sandwiches” but doesn’t have the same ring to it.

If you’re a blueberry lover, like me, check out my Blueberry Chia Jam version too!
