Hi There! It’s Allie with Miss Allie’s Kitchen – I’m here to share another one of my favorite recipes! Speaking of favorite recipes, this 5 Ingredient Chorizo Salsa Breakfast Bake has been getting a lot of love on my site lately, be sure to check it out if you’re a chorizo fan!

Berry season is almost in full force and is there really a better way to capture the flavors than with FRESH JAM??! I think not, my friends. Has anyone ever made chia jam before? Chia seeds are just incredible. Make sure you check out this Tropical Stovetop Chia Pudding while we’re talking chia! Anyway, they have this ability to thicken and bind liquid which makes them the perfect solution for healthier jam.

We’re going to let the fruit do most of the work sweetening the jam, and add a touch of maple syrup for good measure. If you really need a sweet tooth fix, check out my Almond Butter Chocolate Bars! Can’t wait to get our jam on!

Let’s get to it!

Put the saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Allow this to cook down for 15 minutes, until the mixture has released juices, and the strawberries start to break down as you stir them.
