Sometimes you wake up and you fancy oats with a jam, or even jam on toast. It made me realise that sometimes it’s the simple things in your everyday life, which although you may have on a regular basis is usually the best.
I did not want to recreate such a classic stable in everyones cupboard but when I realised how many addictive, artificial flavours and added sugar in one supermarket shop jar I felt obliged to recreate a healthier version.
This recipes does create a lot so if you are only looking for a spoonful, I suggest storing this in the fridge after use. Below is one whole serving on top of ginger oats, which you can barely see:
This recipe is also very adaptable, one could use blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and more. So I recommend getting creative with this one even adding spices. Below is my ginger raspberry chia seed jam:
140g raspberries (or any berry for that matter)
1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds
1 teaspoon of Ginger
On the stove add the berries of your choice until partly stewed. Then remove from the heat and add the tablespoon of chia seeds and the teaspoon of spice. Leave to rest for around 15-20 minutes in the fridge and then serve or if you like it a thicker consistency leave overnight.
