This easy Forest Fruit Chia Jam recipe only requires 3 ingredients and is ready in just 10 minutes! No refined sugar or pectin needed with the use of chia seeds that are naturally gelatinous. This jam is made with frozen mixed berries and you can adjust the sweetness to your taste.
Chia jam is a heathy alternative to regular sugar filled jam. It is packed full of protein, fibre and antioxidants and it tastes great! Naturally sweetened with a little honey or maple syrup if vegan. This makes a small batch of jam that will keep in the fridge for about a week, by that time it is usually all gone at our hose and time to make some more!
You can make this chia jam with any berry. Here I used a frozen mix of forest fruit berries that contained blueberries, raspberries, boysenberries, strawberries and red currents. Use what ever is your favorite. By using frozen berries you can have homemade jam any time of year!

- 5 deciliter, 2 cups mixed frozen berries
- 2 tablespoon chia seeds
- 3-4 tablespoon honey or maple syrup, depending on how sweet you like it
Put the frozen berries in a pan and heat gently for a few minutes while stirring. When the berries are soft and liquid forms, add the honey/maple syrup and chia seeds.
If you have large berries like whole strawberries, mush them with a fork.
Simmer the jam on low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool in the pan. The jam will thicken while it cools.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week.
