Raspberry Chia Seed Jam

Store bought jams are usually filled with  preservatives, and unwanted sugars, but making your own jam at home allows you to control what you are putting into it.

This superfood jam is made with 4 ingredients, and perfect for spooning over toast, crackers, oatmeal and yogurt.

The addition of the Chia Seeds not only adds more texture but adds an additional list of health benefits, such as omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and antioxidants.

Make this jam and store it for the week for a quick topping for your breakfasts and snacks.

Tip: If raspberries arenโ€™t your favorite berry, swap it for blueberries, blackberries or strawberries, or a combination of all.
