I've been having some major sweet tooth attacks and I wanted to make something fruity and sweet but not overly sugary. That's when I ran into this recipe for agave/maple syrup sweetened jam made with chia seeds. Chia seeds are awesome! They are high in fiber and omega-3's plus they have a bit of protein in them. Win win win! Needless to say I got right to it! It's super quick and easy and even little Evelyn even liked it!!! Woohoo! I love that it's not packed with sugar and she loved that it's well...bread with jam! You can adjust the syrup how you see fit and try it with almost any fruit. I made strawberry here and I'll be making blueberry once this one is gone. Hope you love it as much as my family does.
2 cups fresh or frozen fruit of choice
2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tbsp agave or maple syrup
