When strawberries are on sale, I stock up and make a batch of my Chunky Strawberry Chia Seed Jam. What does this go perfectly with? Oh well… just about everything! On top of your morning oatmeal, spread on some toast, or mixed with almond butter to make a nut butter and jelly dip (oh yeah, that’s happening)… endless possibilities!
