I managed to find 3 jams in a low sugar cookbook that might work for most depending on if they can have chia seeds.

Strawberry Lemon Chia Jam

1 cup strawberries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon agave
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon warm water

Combine all in a blender, then refrigerate in a clean glass jar for at least one hour

Blueberry Chia Jam

1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon warm water
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all in a blender, then refrigerate in a clean glass jar for at least one hour

Blackberry Maple Chia Jam

1 cup blackberries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon warm water
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 tsp maple flavoring(I'd add a bit more maple syrup instead)

Combine all in a blender then refrigerate in a clean glass jar for at least an hour.

Blend just a little bit for jam consistency or blend a lot for jelly consistency

I thought that these would make a good topping for cheesecake.

Hi, gcg:

I'm guessing you're using chia seeds for the mucilaginous consistency rather than for the "mild, nutty flavor".
Tell us about using this ingredient - I've never worked with it.
Thanks!


I know you didn't want to share recipes from a B cookbook on the Forum because of copyright. Are these chia-jam recipes somehow in the public domain?

Let's just say that the author of these doesn't own this website.

Thanks, Chloe!  
Has anyone made jam with chia seeds? Does the nutty flavor come across?

I haven't tried this but from my experience using chia seeds when making chia seed pudding,
I can't taste anything nutty about my pudding. I can only taste my other ingredients....dates, almond milk, instant coffee and raw carob powder.

On the other hand... ground flax seeds are very distinguishable.. I've added them to my chia seed pudding (1/2 and 1/2)  and then I can absolutely taste the flax....they have a distinctive nutty flavor, which if flax is freshly ground, the result is appealing.

I'm making the assumption that chia seeds will behave in jam similarly to the way they behave
in chia seed pudding.  They take on the flavors of the other ingredients...and merely provide texture rather than flavor.
