I have always wanted to try chia seeds! They are like the new superfood trend! I am very thankful to have received some chia seeds from the Chia co! I didn’t know what to do with them until I found out you can make jam with them! I have never made jam before, but man this was the time to do it! Like I said in my post about my Blueberry-Lemon Pie Bars, I have over 10 pounds worth of blueberries! I knew it was right to make a blueberry jam with a hint of lemon. Traditional jam usually contains about 1 tbsp of sugar for each one tablespoon serving! That is unbelievable, so your basically just consuming sugar! This Jam on the other hand, has no refined sugar and is mostly sweetened by plump and juicy blueberries and a touch of agave! Plus it only takes about 20 minutes, traditional jam-making is an extremely long process! Quick, easy, healthy, clean and tasty, you can’t go wrong with this, spread it on toast, mix with yogurt, or just eat it with a spoon(it’s that good!), You’ll be happy that you can enjoy a sweet spread with less calories, no sugar, health benefits and a delicious taste!
