Healthy Berry Jam
- 1 cup frozen berries (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, or cherries)
- ⅛ cup Nature's Eats Dried Cranberries or blueberries
- 6-8 drops stevia (liquid)
- 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
- 1½ tablespoon chia seeds
A recipe for a healthy fruit jam is one that is low in sugars and has no added sugar. This recipe calls for natural berries in their frozen or dried state and stevia, making it the perfect no sugar jam. Berry preserves and berry jams are a great way to add sweetness to your favorite nut butter sandwich and can also be used in many dessert recipes - such as Nature's Eats Chocolate Berry Love Balls and Nature's Eats Dark Chocolate Raspberry Almond Truffles recipe.
Let the frozen berries thaw, then mash them in a bowl. Add Nature's Eats Dried Cranberries or blueberries. Next, add stevia and coconut oil. Be sure the mixture is at room temp so that the coconut oil does not harden and clump.
Slowly stir in chia seeds. Let the mixture sit on the countertop for a few hours. Mix occasionally so chia seeds do not clump together.
Transfer to refrigerator and allow to set for 6-8 hours to thicken.
Store in refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to use.
This jam has a preserve or jam texture and the perfect berry sweetness. The chia seeds add texture and go well with your favorite nut butters (Nature's Eats Homemade Peanut Butter, Nature's Eats Homemade Nature's Eats Cashew Butter, Nature's Eats Raw Nutella) as a sandwich or use for your favorite dessert recipe.
