My 15-Minute Blueberry Chia Jam is so easy to make and it uses the natural gelling properties of chia seeds, which are packed with nutrients.

Now that summer is coming to an end, one of the things that I love to do this time of year is make homemade jam. It’s a great way to preserve the sweet flavor of my favorite summer berries, and it’s actually really simple to do at home. Traditionally, making homemade jam takes a lot of time and equipment. In order to get jam to thicken properly you need to add a thickening agent like pectin along with a large amount of sugar. My 15-Minute Blueberry Chia Jam, however, only takes about 15 minutes to make and it uses the natural gelling properties of chia seeds, which are packed with nutrients.
This jam is perfect for back-to-school season because you can use it in so many different ways. I love to swirl it into a bowl of Greek yogurt or oatmeal for a delicious and hearty breakfast. It also makes a great alternative to store bought jelly on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I’ll be packing plenty of these in my daughter Sienna’s lunchbox over the next couple of weeks!
