Quick & Easy Chia Jam

This Quick & Easy Chia Seed Jam makes a perfect healthy spread or sauce! Try some this week on toast or a sandwich for a nutritious burst of fruity flavor.

Chia seed jam is a great alternative to using store-bought jams that are loaded with sugar. This jam uses frozen cherries, but you could use any time of berry. I like to sweeten mine with a dash of maple syrup and squeeze of lemon juice.
