Some delicious jam to go on last week’s macadamia loaf or as pictured here with some freshly toasted low carb life changing loaf, also on the blog.

A great way to use the last of the Australian summer berries; frozen works well too.

  • 120g strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons (30ml) water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar substitute or xylitol (24g)
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) chia seeds

Heat the water and pour in the sugar substitute. Stir until dissolved.

Add the topped strawberries and heat through gently.

Pour into a bowl, add the chia seeds, stir to combine.

Place in the refrigerator for about an hour to thicken and set.

Use with your favourite toast.
