raspberry chia seed jam keto recipe

Breakfast is super important to me – it really sets the tone for my day and keeps me energized.

Usually, I go for a veggie omelette with crispy bacon, a bowl of keto granola, or my quick keto breakfast cookies when I’m rushing out the door.

But sometimes, I get a huge craving for a peanut butter and raspberry sandwich. When that happens, I whip up this quick chia jam, that’s not only high in fiber but also delicious! It’s the perfect sweet touch to start my day right.

Ingredients Needed

To make a fantastic paleo chia jam, you’ll need just a few simple ingredients. I like to call this instant keto jam because it’s ready within minutes and it’s sugar-free—no sugar is used to thicken it or achieve that perfect jam texture.

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen berries – I use raspberries because they are very low in carbs and taste great, but you can use any of your favorite berries.
  • 2-3 tablespoons chia seeds – These nutrient-packed seeds act as a thickener in this recipe transforming the fruits into jam almost instantly.
  • 2-3 tablespoons Erythritol – Use more or less sweetener depending on how sweet you’d like the jam to be.
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

How to Make Chia Jam?

My go-to ratio for berries to chia seeds is two cups of fresh or frozen fruit to 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds. I usually use 2 tablespoons, but I’ll add a third if I want the jam to be thicker, especially when the fruit is extra juicy.

  1. Measure 2 cups of raspberries; you can use fresh ones if they’re in season or frozen—either works just as well.
  2. Place the raspberries in a saucepan over medium-high heat. As they warm up, they’ll start breaking down into a purée-like consistency. Stir constantly for about 3-4 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  3. Add the chia seeds, sweetener, and lemon juice, stirring well to combine everything. The jam will start to thicken as it cools.
  4. Allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes before enjoying. Store your sugar-free jam in an airtight container and it will keep for up to one week.

Best Fruits For Chia Jam

  • Berries: Raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries are all excellent choices for chia jam. They break down easily and have natural pectins that help thicken the jam.
  • Cherries: Pitted and chopped, cherries offer a rich, deep flavor and vibrant color.
  • Peaches: Fresh or canned peaches can be diced or pureed for a sweeter, softer jam.
  • Mango: Chopped mango provides a tropical twist and smooth texture.
  • Kiwi: For a more exotic option, peeled and diced kiwi make a bright and tangy jam.
  • Apple: Grated or finely chopped apple gives a more textured jam with a milder flavor.

Remember to adjust the amount of sweetener based on the natural sweetness of the fruit you choose.

How to Serve Chia Jam?

  • Toast, Bagels, and English Muffins: Spread it over your morning toast, bagels, or English muffins for a sweet start to your day.
  • Waffles and Pancakes: Dollop on top of waffles or pancakes instead of syrup for a fruity twist.
  • Yogurt Parfaits: Mix with Greek yogurt to create parfaits. Prep these at the start of the week in small mason jars, layering chia jam and yogurt. Add granola just before serving for a crunchy, nutritious breakfast.
  • Oatmeal or Porridge: Stir into hot oatmeal or porridge for added flavor and texture.
  • Dessert Topping: Use as a topping for desserts like cheesecake, ice cream, or pudding.
  • Peanut Butter Sandwiches: Combine with peanut butter for a delicious twist on a classic PB&J sandwich.
  • Cheese Pairing: Serve as a condiment on a cheese platter; it pairs wonderfully with both soft and hard cheeses.
  • Smoothie Bowls: Swirl into your smoothie bowls for extra flavor and a pop of color.
  • Baked Goods: Swirl into muffin or cake batters before baking for fruity pockets in your baked treats.

    1. I can’t tell for sure as it’s super easy to make, and a batch lasts for 3-4 days in our hour. I never thought of canning this keto chia jam, but maybe someone else tried it and can help you.

  1. This looks wonderful! I do miss preserves so this looks perfect! (I believe steps 2 and 3 are transposed…not sure if step 4 should be there. )
