Love jam with your toast, but worried about the sugar content? This recipe is for you!
This here is some delicious and easy chia jam. If you are diabetic, health-conscious, have young kids, or just want to try something new, this is a perfect easy recipe to get you started.
It combines natural fruit, chia seeds which act as a binder instead of sugar, and a little sweetener if so desired.
The result is a tasty jam that you can use on your toast, in your peanut butter sandwiches, on top of your pancakes, or stirred into your unsweetened yogurt or yogurt alternative. You could even use it in your porridge or in any creative way you would normally use jam.
All you need to do is boil some fruit and water together before adding some chia seeds and a sweetener. Once it begins to thicken, you can put it in a jar and let it cool.
Once cooled, store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks for best freshness.
That's it! It really is Easy Peasy!
