Low-Sugar Jam Recipe 


Is there anything more delicious than (gluten-free) toast, butter, and jam?? 
The problem is that most jams are FULL of sugar. 
I love to make my own jam, that way I can control how much sugar goes into it. It’s also SUPER simple to make. 

  • 2 cups of berries (frozen berries work too) 
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice syrup/raw honey (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Method: 

  • Place the fruit, lemon juice, and rice syrup/honey in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. 
  • Simmer 15 minutes until it bubbles and breaks down; use a potato masher or fork to mash the fruit to your desired consistency. 
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the chia seeds until well combined, then let it sit at least 15 minutes to allow the chia seeds to gelatinize. 
  • The longer it sits the more jammy it gets. 
  • It will keep in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

If you like a really smooth jam you can puree the fruit mixture in a blender, but more washing up so….. I take the mash it with a fork option! 

Grab my gluten-free guide for delicious vehicles to transport this jam into your mouth!
