I love, love, love raspberries! Every year as far back as I can remember being on my own, I have made raspberry freezer jam. It was my first claim to cooking! I grew up watching my Granny make jams and jellies of all kinds, and I remember it was a long process…or it seemed to me as a kid! With new health benefits of chia seeds emerging, adding them to the raspberry jam only makes it that much better! This version is super quick and easy! You can make jam anytime! Overnight oats and raspberry chia jam, makes this breakfast jar easy!
RASPBERRY JAM & OAT BREAKFAST JAR
Raspberry Chia Jam
1 cup fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons chia seeds
Combine cleaned raspberries, honey, and lemon juice in a bowl. Using a fork, mash raspberries until they begin to break down and resemble thick jam. Stir in chia seeds, cover with a lid, and set in refrigerator to chill overnight. Could it be any easier? Yum!
2 cups rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or your favorite milk choice)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons raw honey (optional and 100% maple syrup works well to me too)
In a large jar or bowl combine all oat ingredients until they are thoroughly mixed. If you would like sweeter oats, add in a tablespoon or two of raw honey or pure maple syrup. Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning layer overnight oats with raspberry chia jam in two small mason jars.Feel free to garnish with fresh raspberries or nuts if desired. You can eat your oats cold, at room temperature, or even warmed up. Too good to not try right? Enjoy!
