There’s so much hype at the moment about health foods and super foods – like chia seeds for example, because of their abundance of healthy omega-3 fats and fibre, along with claims that it can combat diabetes and fight belly fat. If this is true then it must be the superman of superfoods! (sorry)
Readily available in most health food shops, I decided to buy them… Then had no idea what to do with them. Just add it to smoothies? You can, but that seemed a bit boring. An overnight oat type thing? On my to-do list, but am currently licking out the last of the peanut butter (it would HAVE to include peanut butter, else it’s not a real breakfast). So what?
So I have an excuse to make scones.
This particular jam is a melange of two recipes I found online, and only includes 3 ingredients:
- 400g strawberries (hulled)
- agave nectar (or honey, maple syrup – basically whatever you have in)
- 2 Tbsp chia seeds
