GLWGRLS Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Kris loves a good jam spread and it’s not always easy to find packaged jams without tons of added sugars and preservatives. When I do find better options to purchase, the taste and texture is generally not the best, so I decided to make my own! The magic ingredient here are chia seeds. Chia seeds thicken the jam, perfectly giving the jam that “jam” texture. I sweetened mine, but you can also not sweeten yours at all since the fruits generally are pretty sweet on their own… Especially strawberries.

Strawberry Chia Seed Jam

Course Breakfast
Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 1 .5 Cups


  • Pot
  • Canning Jar


  • 5 cups frozen organic strawberries can use any other berry as well
  • 5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp lemon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  • Heat fruit in a pot over medium - high heat, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is heated through and begins to break down and bubble.
  • Use a spoon or potato masher to mash the fruit to your desired consistency…. I actually used my immersion blender and it worked well.
  • Stir in the chia seeds and lemon juice until combined. Then taste and stir in 1 or 2 tbs sweetener if needed.
  • Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. The jam will thicken considerably as it cools.
  • Give the jam one final good stir. Then serve immediately, or transfer to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months


This is the perfect berry jam that you can feel good about eating! It takes very little time and effort and lasts for a long time!  This is great to serve for brunch or to bring as hostess gift when invited to someone home for brunch.
