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.
