Think ahead and stir up a batch of deliciously healthy chia seed jam before tucking in at night. Enjoy dressing up your morning oats with a couple spoonfuls or naturally sweeten up a tray of Oven-Baked Pancakes. This sugar-free condiment is a great addition to any Protective Diet breakfast.
This is my favorite jam! I tweaked it and added 1T lemon juice and 1/4 c erythritol in place of stevia. I love it with strawberries, blackberry, and blueberries combined! The best jam on PD bread!!!
This is SO simple to make and tastes great mixed with yogurt or over refrigerator oats. I’ve made a cherry on, strawberry and blueberry, and mixed berries. All great!
We put this on the PD banana bread – so easy to make & so good to eat!!
We also add it to the PD Banana Bread! It’s so nice to grab fruit on sale, then whip up some jam!
This jam is very yummy! My kids are picky and loved it.
What is the lighter tan spread on the other slice of bread? I see a comment referencing a video, but there is no video on this that I can find!
Hi Laura, The other spread and video has been removed do to the ingredients not being compliant to a PD.
Hi everyone! I’m new to this PD “stuff” and am loving it! I’m wondering how to find the video that is referenced in the comments above? It says it explains what the other Jam is besides strawberry. Do all the recipes have videos? thanks for any help!
I was JUST thinking, it needs to be canned! i am going to get around to trying to do a home canning of this so I can make a bigger batch at once and enjoy through the year. I do it with chutneys, with no preservatives, all the time. it’s pretty easy! Nothing lost in trying 🙂
Thanks Julie, It looks fabulous!
How did the canning of the Chia seed strawberry jam turn out? I also wonder if anyone tried to freeze it?
Please let us know how canning worked. Thanks.
I am very interested incanning fresh strawberries in different ways to make use of our local berry farm. Strawberries right now, blueberries later. No sugar but ways to keep things without having to rely on the freezer. Any ideas?
I’m not familiar with how to do shelf stable canning without preservatives.
My son eats this stuff with a spoon. Absolutely DELICIOUS!
Yes, 16 oz is 2 cups. Grocery store strawberries are usually packaged in 16 oz containers. Don’t even have to measure. 🙂
I made a half batch with some ‘left over, starting to get old looking ‘ strawberries this morning and really liked it.
Does it freeze well? It’s a great way to use older berries, but I am the only one who will eat it at my house so I hesitate to make a full batch.
Freezing is a great idea! This jam is free of preservatives and may mold if you don’t eat it up in a few days.
is 16 oz two cups?
Delish!!! Love it!!! 🙂 Another great recipe! I’d love a cream cheese recipe to go on my toast under the jam.
Great news! There is now a cream cheeze recipe!
This recipe is AMAZING! I made a batch with strawberries for my dad and he LOVED it. He couldn’t tell that this quick, easy homemade version didn’t have any added sugar or preservatives that he’s used to. This could not be any easier!
This recipe is absolutely genius! I love replacing store-bought, processed foods with homemade alternatives, and this does not disappoint. When made in a Vitamix, the jam has a thick, almost gel-like consistency of traditional jellies. I’ve made this several times with variations, and my favorite to date is multi-berry spiced jam (with cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and ginger). It tastes like mulled wine in jam form. Thanks, Julie!
I didn’t have any strawberries, so I made this with blueberries. Delicious! Stirred a little bit into my Steel Cut Oats. Can’t wait to try it with strawberries!
Julie wondering what does the other bread has on it?
Hi, I don’t have access to a video… I am a PD-ED member… what is the non red spread on the toast? Is it just the ingredients minus fruit?
I removed the lighter one because it wasn’t PD approved.
Never mind! Just watched the video 🙂
Since I can be too lazy to make a frosty and clean the blender, I have a spoonful or two of this as a sweet treat.
I made this with blueberries last week! I ran out of bananas so put it in my morning oats. Very good! What a great replacement to jam with sugar!
