Sugar Free Keto Strawberry Jam with Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a little natural miracle and this Keto Strawberry Jam recipe shows how handy they can be.

Once exposed to moisture, they quickly become gelatinous and have a wonderful texture, commonly used in breakfast puddings and all sorts of interesting things.

Keto Strawberry Jam is an easy dish to prepare and goes perfectly with everything from breakfast to dessert! Using chia seeds and xylitol, this easy keto recipe is ready in no time. #keto #easyketo #ketogenicrecipes

Here, their natural stickiness becomes a delicious Keto Strawberry Jam. Now I know not everyone loves chia seeds like me, the texture can put some people off.

For those people, I’d suggest blending them up and see how it goes! For me, because you are using fresh strawberries to make this Keto jam, I just pretend the chia seeds are extra strawberry seeds. Mind you, I can convince myself to eat just about anything (except licorice)

I’ve even heard that chia seeds can be used to replace eggs for vegans! Here’s more information from The Minimalist Baker: Chia Egg Recipe

This is ready in just 5 minutes but thickens further after being chilled in the fridge. If you think it’s a little runny still I’d suggest letting it cool before you add more chia seeds, as it will thicken further when it has been in the fridge for a bit.

I use Xylitol to sweeten the jam, but you can use whatever sweetener you wish.

I only have Xylitol in small doses, as any sweetener should be used – we are weening ourselves off sweet things on Keto to stop the cravings, so this is an occasional treat!

I have detailed why I use Xylitol in my article, Why I Use Xylitol As My Sweetener of Choice.

This jam goes perfectly with my Keto Scones recipe. 

I also have this jam regularly combined with some tasty Greek Yoghurt and my Keto Granola. Breakfast is sorted!

Once I made this easy Keto Jam, my mind started thinking what else Jam is used for – and of course I had to make some Keto Lamingtons

    Thank you for this recipe. It is a winner.
    I made this as per recipe. I do not care for the vanilla. Next time I will make it without vanilla.
    Does it freeze well?

    • Hi! That would be fine to leave out the vanilla – I love vanilla flavour but know it’s not for everyone 🙂 Hmm not sure it would freeze well, as strawberries go icy when frozen. You could always try a little bit and see!

  • How many carbs are in your recipes ? our Doc has set a target of the number of carbs per day so would love to try your recipes but worried about our target Thanks Michelle

    • Hi Michelle, I usually have nutrition labels on all recipes but am having trouble with the website (technology!!) They should be back up within a day or so.
