Cherry Chia Jam Recipe

The chia seed craze continues with this yummy Cherry Chia Jam Recipe. Just a few ingredients, a couple of minutes, and your jam will be cooling for you to use on your toast, puddings, ice cream and yogurts.

I know. I know. I’m obsessed. Everything Chia Seeds! So sorry, but this one is great for anyone who likes jam, wants to make their own, but really doesn’t want to make a huge massive amount of jam just for themselves.

This is really easy to make, and with only 4 ingredients, you should be able to make this without delay.

I use this in my plain yogurt to give it flavor, as a topping for my overnight oats, and as a topping for my plain chia pudding. It would work great as a filling for cakes as well.

Feeling adventurous today? Enjoy!
