Customizable 3 ingredient, sugar free chia jam

IMG_1192 2

This has been circulating around the internet for quite some time so I decided to make some myself! I made three different kinds just to give some inspiration. The combinations are absolutely endless!

Mine are 100% fruit sweetened, no added sugar, only 3 base ingredients. All the goodness! The chia seeds also bring an extra healthy fats to your breakfast, pancakes or what ever you have it with!

Ops! It doesn’t contain anything to prevent it from molding and such like regular jam! So it’s important to keep it in the fridge and eat it within a week or less. You can also freeze it if you fancy!

Enjoy!
