5-minute raspberry chia seed jam

Chia seed jam is a healthy, low-sugar alternative to regular jam.  You can whip this up in 5 minutes and have an incredible, homemade jam in your fridge!  I used this post as my guide for this recipe.

  • 2 cups raspberry (if using frozen, defrost first)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 24 tablespoons honey (preferably raw)*
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)


Add all ingredients (start with 2 tablespoons of the honey) to a blender or food processor, and pulse until the it is the texture you prefer.  I didn’t want mine chunky, but you may leave it that way if that’s how you like it.  Taste and add more honey if you would like a sweeter jam.  (I like it with 2 tablespoons, but with the raspberries being a tart fruit, it isn’t as sweet as regular jam, so add more if you want it like more traditional jam.) Transfer the mixture to a container with a lid (I used a mason jar) and allow to set in the fridge, about an hour.  Enjoy!



*Substitute another liquid sweetener, such as agave nectar, to make this vegan
