Chia Jam Recipe
Quick & Easy Chia Jam
Fresh jam for breackfast? This alternative to regular jam uses chia as the thickening agent. Therefore, it is lower in sugar and has no added refined sugar. Chia seeds are very high in fibre which makes the jam lower glycaemic index. Chia is also a good plant based source of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. What's not to like?
We reccomend serving this beautiful lower-sugar jam with Le Pain des Fleurs Chestnut Crispbread, for a delicious and nutritions breakfast.
