PB&J W/ homemade Chia Seed Jam
  • 16 oz frozen berries (or fresh in the summer)⁠
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds⁠
  • 2 slices of bread⁠
  • 2 tbsp natural crunchy peanut butter⁠
  1. Heat fruit in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the fruit is heated through and begins to break down and bubble. Use a fork or potato masher to mash the fruit to your desired consistency.⁠

  2. Stir in the chia seeds until combined.⁠

  3. Reduce heat and simmer for 2-4 minutes⁠

  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes. (The jam will thicken considerably as it cools.)⁠

  5. Give the jam one final good stir. Make sandwich by toasting bread and spreading one slice with peanut butter and 1 slice with jam. Transfer leftovers to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.⁠ 

  6. TIP: I love to serve this with a tall glass of unsweetened soy milk, a piece of fruit and an easy veggie (like baby carrots)⁠⁠
