  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1/2 lb blueberries (you can use frozen)
  • 1/2 lb strawberries (you can use frozen)
  • 23 tbsps pure maple syrup
  • 3 tbsps chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Bring the blueberries and strawberries to a low boil on the stove top, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the berries have softened, about 5 minutes. Mashed the berries to the desired consistency. We like ours with larger chunks.
  2. Stir in the maple syrup and chia seeds. Cook the jam on low until it thickens, about 5-7 minutes. Stir the jam to keep it from sticking.
  3. Remove the jam from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Once jam has cooled to room temperature, pour it in a glass jar and store in the refrigerator.


  • The jam will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, but you can also freeze it in an air-tight container.
  • You can substitute the maple syrup for honey or agave.
