Easy Blackberry Chia Seed Jam (Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo)

This simple blackberry chia seed jam is ready in 15 minutes and tastes fantastic! A great use for fresh or frozen berries.

I make a LOT of bread on out homestead!  Typically its my easy 4 Ingredient No Knead Bread in the Dutch oven, a Saturday morning ritual for us.  Its great as toast, to dip in bread, or for an open face sandwich.  Last weekend I had a bunch of fresh blackberries, and decided to make a jam to have with our breakfast!

What’s In This Blackberry Chia Seed Jam?

  • Blackberries, you can use fresh or frozen
  • Chia Seeds

  • Vanilla Extract

This jam is versatile so you can use fresh or frozen berries. When there is a sale I like to stock up and put a few pints and freeze whatever we don’t eat fresh.  Frozen berries are great for smoothies and perfect in this jam.

How Do I Make Blackberry Chia Seed Jam:

  1. In a saucepan, heat the blueberries over low heat for 7 to 8 minutes, until they begin to break down.  Add the chia seeds and maple syrup and continue to stir until the berries dissolve, about another 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat, and stir in the vanilla extract.  Allow jam to sit for a few minutes to thicken and enjoy!

This jam keeps really well in the fridge too!  When finished making, put any leftover jam in airtight containers.  It’ll keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
