Jam is one of those little treats that takes your straight back to your berry-stained childhood. The great thing about it is you can make it with any combination of fruit you like, it doesn’t have to be sugar-packed, and add in a few chia seeds and you’ve got yourself a pretty nutritiously delicious jam.

Chia and Berry Jam Pots [Vegan]


Cooking Time




  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 cup rapadura/coconut sugar
  • juice of one half lemon
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 4 servings of porridge/semolina/brown rice, cooked


  1. Thoroughly wash your berries and place into a  saucepan. Stir through sweetener.  Add the lemon juice and bring to boil while stirring continuously.
  2. Boil your jam for a total of 3 - 5 minutes. This short heating process will keep most of the minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron).
  3. Let cool and then add chia. Let set for 20 minutes before dividing the jam into jars by layering it with cooked and slightly cooled porridge.
