  • 2 cups organic strawberries chopped into chunks
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tbsp organic maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds finely ground


  • Combine strawberries, water, and lemon juice in a small pot. Cover and bring to a boil.
  • Remove lid. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for an additional 15 minutes, stirring every few minutes. The strawberry mixture will thicken.

  • Stir in ground chia seeds and let sit to cool.
  • When cooled completely, transfer to a jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You can freeze the jam for up to 3 months.



  • Grind the chia seeds into a fine powder. 
  • Stir the mixture every few minutes.
  • Allow the jam to cool completely before transferring it to a sealed jar.
