Keto raspberry jam

This delicious and easy raspberry chia jam recipe is low carb and keto-friendly!

If you’re like me, you love homemade raspberry jam, but you are not a big fan of how loaded with sugar it is. Don’t get me wrong, I still love my mom’s sugary homemade raspberry jam, but I think it is awesome to have an easy, low carb option too.

With this SUPER simple recipe (it takes less than 10 minutes), you can whip up a delicious, low carb homemade raspberry chia jam that is not loaded with sugar!

I tried out a few different recipes and this one from All Day I Dream About Food was one of the more simple, but also the most delicious! Sure, it’s not quite as tasty as a traditional, full-of-sugar homemade raspberry jam. But it is darn close!

frozen raspberries and swerve sweetener

Only 4 Ingredients!

All you need for this raspberry chia jam recipe are some raspberries, low carb sweetener, water, and chia seeds.

The sweetener I use is called Swerve. (You can use Swerve Granular or Confectioners in this recipe. It is the Confectioners shown in the photos though.) Swerve is an erythritol blend that is great for low carb and ketogenic recipes. It measures just like sugar but does not affect blood sugar. (I order mine from Amazon!)

Adding chia seeds to jam mixture

Don’t Skip the Chia Seeds!

Have you tried using chia seeds as a substitute for pectin in jam before? It is so cool! Nix the pectin and add a superfood to do the job!

Chia seeds are perfect with raspberry jam too because they totally blend in with the raspberry seeds. Plus, they have multiple health benefits:

  • Tons of nutrients but low in calories
  • Loaded with antioxidants
  • High-quality protein
  • High in fiber
  • High in Omega-3 fatty acids

Final Thoughts & Serving Tips

I have some picky jam people in my family and this raspberry chia jam recipe totally passes as a worthy option.

Yes, raspberries do contain carbs, but they are considered to be among the lower-carb fruit options. If you are eating keto, then you may want to use fruit and jam sparingly. It sure is awesome to have a delicious, homemade raspberry jam every once in a while though!

Stir it into yogurt or serve with a muffin, bread, pancake, ice cream, or whatever other low carb creations you would love to add raspberry jam too!
