Strawberry Chia Jam

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (350 g) frozen strawberries*
  • 2 Tbsp (30 ml) maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp (14 g) chia seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Add strawberries and maple syrup to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Heat until the berries begin to release their liquid, about 5-15 minutes depending on whether or not they were thawed first. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until berries begin to break down and thicken, about 5 -10 minutes. Use your spoon to break them apart further if desired.
  2. Stir in the chia seeds and vanilla, continuing to cook for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the jam to cool. It will continue to thicken the longer it sits, which is why I usually like to make it the night before I’m planning on making these bars.

* You can easily sub out strawberries for your favourite frozen fruit.
