Mixed Berry and Chia Jam

Mixed Berry and Chia Jam

In a bid to cut down on refined sugar (really hard when you love baking so much!!) I came across this recipe for a sugar free jam. It’s very easy to make and it tastes really good too.

With this Chia Jam being sugar free it’s a great plus and alternative to regular jam but the mixed berries are great for you too. They have lots of antioxidants, fibre and vitamin C. And then there’s the Chia Seeds. They are full of Omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein. So I reckon this little pot of jam is bit of a Superfood!

I have putting it on my Wholemeal Date Scones and I also put on my plain or natural yoghurt for breakfast in the morning.

    Pinned! How yummy does this look?! Chia jam is all the rage right now and I’ve haven’t ever tried it, so I seriously feel like I’m missing out! 😀

    Yum. I do a similar raspberry one and a blueberry one too. I will have to try this as it looks great. The jams are really yummy on top of yoghurt too. Thanks so much for linking it up to YWF

    Oh this is fabulous!
    I love that it only had maple syrup in it and not a lot at that!
    My hubby loves berries, but I wonder if it would work just as well with other fruits? like mango or similar?
    I’ve only been good at making chilli jam, every other jam never set of me or I didn’t want to know after seeing nearly 1kg sugar go into it.
    this is so awesome. Going to pin it to make for later.
    Thanks for linking up to Your Weekly Feed too. x

    This jam looks delicious, Belinda. I’m delightfully surprised that it’s not difficult to make! Pinned and Tweeted. Thanks for partying with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday.
