This easy strawberry rhubarb chia jam is made with only 5 ingredients and sweetened with just honey and fruit! Spoon it over everything this season for a sweet, healthy taste of spring! (gluten-free, vegan option)


  • 2 cups diced strawberries
  • 1 1/2 cups diced rhubarb (about 2 stalks)
  • 1/3 cup honey (use maple syrup or agave nectar for vegan)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds


  1. In a small saucepan, bring strawberries, rhubarb, and honey to a gentle simmer. Cook, covered, about 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently, until strawberries are soft.
  2. Mash strawberries with a fork or potato masher until broken up.
  3. Turn off heat. Add lemon juice and chia seeds and stir. The jam will thicken up as the seeds absorb the liquid and the mixture cools. You can either let it cool and thicken in the pan, or pour it into storage containers while it is still warm.
  4. Pour into a container with a lid and store in the refrigerator up to 1 week.


  • Use agave nectar or maple syrup in place of honey for a completely vegan option.
  • You can use frozen strawberries and/or rhubarb if you'd like. You may nee to add a few minutes to the cook time to allow for defrosting.
  • Chia jam can be frozen. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
