Blueberry Chia Seed Jam

Great as a topping on anything from toast to pancakes, this jam is packed with blueberry flavor and the healthy benefits of chia seeds.



  1. Lightly mash the blueberries (if you’re using frozen ones, make sure to unthaw)
  2. Place the blueberries, coconut sugar and lemon in a medium-sized pan on the stove
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring often
  4. Reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes and continue to “mash” the blueberries with a fork or masher (you’ll want to mash them until they reach desired consistency, leaving some a little chunkier for even more texture in the jam)
  5. Let it cool
  6. Once cooled, bring to a simmer once again, add chia seeds and stir frequently for about 8-10 minutes
  7. Remove entire mixture from heat, and let it cool completely
  8. Transfer to a Mason jar (or other storage container), and store in the fridge

    Just made my second batch of this and it is TERRIFIC!!! I used a frozen organic berry blend and the flavor is outstanding…just the right amount of sweetness. The texture and consistency of the jam is perfect, too. Thanks for posting this recipe; I’ll be using it a lot!

    I just got the recipe for the jam I was wondering if you would be able to do this in larger batches in canning the jam? Reason is in the summer I do canning for the blueberries,blackberries and the strawberries to jellies and jams.

      Hi Tommie – Yes, you should be able to can the jam. Give it a try, and let us know how it goes. Have fun!
