Paleo & Keto Chia Jam 🍓
With Your Berry Of Choice!
If you’ve already made our overnight chia pudding, then you know that chia seeds add a lot of bulk. So they really are an awesome way of enjoying your berry jams without going carb crazy, as well as being super easy to whip up.
Think just 15 minutes and 1g net carb per serving.
Chia seeds are awesome, and we’re crazy about them here at gnom-gnom. These tiny Mexican guys pack a whole lot of protein and add a whole lot of oomph. They contain large amounts of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, plenty of high quality protein, and several essential minerals and antioxidants.
Oh, and this very berry chia jam is a seriously awesome pairing with our mile-high flakey biscuits!
Paleo, Low Carb & Keto Chia Jam
- Cook your berries of choice (we love raspberries!) in a saucepan over medium heat until they begin to break down, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in the lemon juice and sweetener of choice (to taste). Mash it down or leave it chunky. Cook for 5 more minutes, remove from heat and stir in the chia seeds. Let stand until it begins to thicken, adding water if needed to thin out until desired consistency is reached.
- Allow to cool to room temperature and store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or two and in the freezer for up to three months.
