3/4 cup frozen berries (Blueberries are my favorite, followed by raspberries, then strawberries)
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp chia seeds
Natural sweetener of choice, such as stevia (optional)
In a small saucepan, combine berries, water, and chia seeds. Heat over low heat for 5-10 minutes or until the chia seeds have started to gel (it will thicken more as it cools). If it is too runny, add 1-2 more tsp of chia seeds and continue heating until desired consistency is reached. Add sweetener to taste. Refrigerate for up to 1 week.
Serve with coconut flour pancakes, in yogurt, on oatmeal, or however else you like jam! I like to make it on weekends while I make my coconut flour pancakes and use it warm as compote and refrigerate the rest to use throughout the week in steel cut oats or unsweetened coconut yogurt.
