The secret to this chia seed jam is one of my favorite vegan binders – CHIA SEEDS!

Chia seeds can be used in so many ways, not to mention their amazing health benefits.

Try using them to make an egg substitute, homemade jam, or overnight oats!

You can most likely find them at your local health food store or chain grocery store.

I love finding new ways to use chia seeds and this recipe definitely ranks as one of my top favorites!

Hi, I've been making chia seed jam as my normal. I use dates for my sweetener. (I add a little water to the dates and let them soak before buzzing them into a paste) then I just use thawed berries and a little chia. Some berries have more juice liquid than others so I thus us more chia seeds. No boiling or anything. I was excited to find others using chia seeds ad a thickener.

What a great simple recipe! I love seedy jams like strawberry and raspberry so I'm thinking the chia seeds would actually feel familiar. Can't wait to make my own jam and then maybe grab a spoon :)
