Sunbutter and Cherry Chia Jam

Sunbutter and Cherry Chia Jam

Sprout Living


This Sunbutter and Cherry Chia Jam is a unique take on your typical jam that combines roasted sunflower seeds, frozen cherries, hemp and chia seeds and vanilla bean. Enjoy!


For the Sunbutter
  • 2 cups roasted sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 vanilla bean (all of the insides scraped out)
For the Chia Jam
  • 1 tbsp chia seds
  • 1 tbsp vanilla paste
  1. For the Sunbutter, place all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend (be patient as this may take up to 20 minutes!)
  2. Every few minutes stop the food processor to scrap down the sides. Blend until a drippy peanut butter-like texture is achieved.
  3. For the Chia Jam, place cherries and vanilla into a medium saucepan over medium heat, and continue to cook for about 10-15 minutes or until the cherries melt and begin to simmer. Slightly mash the cherries every few minutes.
  4. After the cherries have melted and reduced a bit, turn off the heat and add in the chia seeds. Wait until the mixture has completely cooled before refrigerating.
  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
  6. Enjoy!
