Triple Berry Chia Seed Jam with strawberries, blueberries and blackberries is small batch, refined sugar-free and ready in just 20 minutes!


  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup blackberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 5 tablespoons chia seeds


  1. Add the berries to a saucepan with the maple syrup.
  2. Cover and cook over medium heat until the berries have softened and juices have been released.
  3. Remove from the heat and mash the berries with a fork or potato masher.
  4. Add the chia seeds and stir to combine.
  5. Cover the jam and let sit for 10 minutes or until the chia seeds have plumped and thickened the berry mixture.
  6. Transfer the jam to a jar or glass dish, then cover and store in the fridge for up to a week.


  1. If you like a thicker chia jam, use 6 tablespoons of chia seeds.
  2. If you like your jam a little runnier, use 4 tablespoons of chia seeds or add a little water.
  3. You can swap out different berries or use a different combination of berries. Just make sure it’s a juicy kind of berry.
  4. If you like chunks of fruit in your jam, you don’t need to mash up the berries as much.
  5. You can leave out the maple syrup or, if you like a sweeter jam, you can use more.
  6. Be sure to check out the other sections above the recipe card for more detailed advice and suggestions for making this recipe.
