Homemade Raspberry Chia Jam

Peanut butter and jelly. Does that ever get old? Not to me.

I grew up eating PB&J sandwiches and there are days where I still crave it. It gives me a hit of the childhood days. Instead of buying prepackaged jam, I decided to make my own jam because I had leftover raspberries in my fridge I needed to get rid of.

Also, there’s chia seeds in this recipe which increases the fiber and protein content. The main reason is that it acts as a thickener as the seeds expand. It’s a win-win situation here!

I made a big batch of this jam and placed it in my fridge for 3 days before it was all finished by my family. Which led me to make MORE!

In this recipe, I toasted two slices of toast, added creamy peanut butter, the raspberry chia jam and then bee pollen, pumpkin seeds, shredded coconut and more chia seeds on top.
