Chia Seed Jam

Chia seed jam is the easiest recipe ever — whip up this tasty, two-ingredient topping up in just two minutes! 

Strawberry Chia Jam

This just may be the easiest recipe ever.

Two ingredients (chia seeds and fruit) + two minutes = unbelievable tastiness.

I learned this awesome kitchen hack from my mother-in-law. She knows what a seed nut I am and was shocked when she found out I didn’t know about the fabulous concoction that is chia seed jam.

In the same way that chia seeds expand in water and transform into the ideal, gooey, egg replacement, they also form a jelly-like consistency when combined with pureed fruit. What results is a delicious, naturally sweetened “jam” that gives Smuckers a run for their money.
