    Keto chia seeds jam is a delicious spreadable jam that is perfect for those on a keto diet. This keto jam bursts with flavor with various berries, chia seeds, lemon juice, and monk fruit blend sweetener. This recipe is an easy-to-make keto jam recipe that can be made in just 5 to 7 minutes, and the best part is, it is sugar-free! Since chia seeds naturally expand to form a jelly-like consistency and texture, it is perfect for making a jelly mixture. The jelly consistency makes chia seeds a great natural substitute for making a thick jam without adding sugar. Enjoy this berry chia jam on top of your keto waffles, pancakes or warm keto rolls.

    Chia Seeds

    Chia seeds are tiny black and white oval-shaped seeds that can be eaten raw, soaked in water or juice, added to keto oatmeal, pudding, smoothies, and many other ways. These seeds are often associated with their health benefits as they are packed with nutrients and contain large amounts of fiber, protein, fat, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and antioxidants. Once chia seeds are soaked in water or another liquid, they form a thick, jelly texture, which can help with weight loss since people will get full faster.


    This keto chia seed jam recipe uses the best combination of keto-approved berries to make a delicious keto jam. The berries in the recipe, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries, all have a lower sugar content than other fruits such as oranges and apples. With low sugar content, they are considered keto-friendly berries, making them perfect for a keto jam. You can also make substitutions to make a jam with only one type of berry or change the type of berry to raspberries. You can even choose your own proportions of berries or make a different mix altogether.

    When it comes to sweeteners, you can essentially use any type of sugar-free sweetener to increase the sweetness of the jam. Make sure to try your jam before adding sweetener because the berries may be sweet enough to not even need an additional sweetener. Some of my favorite keto-approved sweeteners for this recipe include monk fruit, erythritol, Truvia, Stevia, Allulose, and ChocZero syrups.


    After you have finished making your jam, make sure to let it cool to room temperature before you store it. That way, the jam can thicken, and the fruit will not float to the top of the jar. Make sure you do not wait too long before pouring the jam into clean jars since it may grow bacteria if left lukewarm and uncovered. You can store the jam covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks, or if you want to make an even larger batch of jam, it can be frozen for up to 6 months!

    1. I don’t have lemon juice, but want to make this. Would lime juice work? Would anything else work as a substitute for the lemon juice? ?

      1. Yes, lime juice would work just fine. It’s just to brighten the flavor. I use lime juice often when I don’t have lemon juice. I always seem to go through the lemon juice first. 🙂

    2. I made this jam today and it is so lovely. I modified it according to what I had on hand so I increased the blueberry amount to make up for my not having any blackberries and I used orange juice instead of lemon. I was unsure about how the orange would go, but it seems to be fine and I’m so glad to have found this recipe. Thank you for developing so many simple, yummy keto treats and sharing them with the world!
