Say hello to gluten-free Plum Chia Seed Jam! I picked a few pounds of Italian plums and was trying to use them up as quickly as I could! I used my blackberry chia seed jam recipe to make a delicious plum version. I like how tart this jam turned out! You could always add some vanilla to sweeten it up to your liking.

As you may know, I’m a huge fan of Bread SRSLY sourdough, so as soon as my jam was ready I topped a toasted piece of sourdough with some peanut butter and jam. What a glorious combo! You’re missing out if you don’t make this jam immediately. 😁

Plum Chia Seed Jam


  • 2 cups plums roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds


  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the plums and cook until they start to break down, stirring and mashing frequently. Around 10 minutes or so.
  • Turn the heat to low, stir in the maple syrup and lemon juice. Then stir in the chia seeds and turn off the heat.
  • Allow the mixture to stand for 5 – 7 minutes until the chia seeds thicken the jam and mixture starts to cool down. The jam will keep thickening as it cools.
  • Serve immediately or transfer to an airtight container. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


  • If you’re using a rather tart fruit, you could add a 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract for extra sweetness. 
  • Feel free to use any berries that you have handy: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries.
