I love to make raspberry chia jam to put in my smoothies, on my toast or with my oatmeal.  It is a great addition to yogurt or parfaits too.  This version is refined sugar-free and contains nutrient-dense chia seeds which resemble raspberry seeds making this jam look super authentic.

You won't believe how quickly it comes together and how simple the method is!


  • 1.5 cups frozen unsweetened raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons black or white chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Add the frozen raspberries to a small saucepan over low heat and cook uncovered until the raspberries start to break down and release their juices (about 5 minutes). I like to use a potato masher to smash the raspberries and get it nice and smooth.
  2. Remove the saucepan from the burner and then add the maple syrup, chia seeds and vanilla extract (if using).  Stir until well combined.
  3. Transfer to a small glass jar and let cool completely in the refrigerator.  The jam will continue to thicken overnight in the refrigerator.  Enjoy after it has chilled for at least 6 hours (overnight is ideal).
  4. Store in your refrigerator for up to one week.
