Satisfy your morning sweet tooth with this easy peach chia jam! Made using fresh summer peaches, this vegan peach jam uses unrefined sugar and chia seeds – making it a healthy alternative to store-bought peach jam!
In a small saucepan, add the chopped peaches, maple syrup and lemon juice. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. The peaches will become syrupy and soft. As the peaches simmer, break them apart with a wooden spoon.
Remove the peaches from the heat and then stir in the chia seeds. Set aside and allow the peach chia jam to cool. As it cools, it will continue to thicken.
Store the peach chia jam in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. I always use mason jars. The jam should remain fresh for about 5days.
For this recipe, I use white chia seeds. The difference is in aesthetics. I just find that the white seeds give the peach chia jam a better appearance.
