Hello, Saturday morning! Allow me to entice you with this Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam Peanut Butter Breakfast Toast for, well, breakfast.
Peanut Butter & Jelly for breakfast? Yes, please!
Soooo, I have this thing where I kind of try out something new, and then I become obsessed with it. Unfortunately, this habit falls in under the “bad” category because it’s generally food related and never “Oh, let me just go to spin class twice a day cause I’m obsessed.” Yeah, no. Sigh…
Look how beautiful this jam is in the pic above? All you do is mix and mash! MIX + MASH = BLISS!! That’s it!
Well, my latest little obsession is homemade chia seed jams (my first strawberry version here). I’m a lover of all things homemade, especially when they’re easy homemade, and this Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam is exactly that. So this recipe started as me wanting to make a jam and ended up with a breakfast toast. A Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam & Peanut Butter Breakfast Toast to be exact.
Or you could just call it PB & Chia Seed Jam toast…
So toast, it’s pretty versatile these days and no one is gonna bat an eye if you eat it for breakfast, lunch or dinner (In my case I chose all 3). Honestly, I think you should do just that too. Why? Well, because it’s easy and some days you just need that easy button so here it is folks!
Going back to the versatile comment I made earlier, the Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam is too. You can make a lot or a little. It will last a little over a week in an airtight container if you want to eat this meal multiple times or get creative and make new ones, but you can also just make what you need. All you need to do is equally cut the ingredients down or equally add to them. Jam on!
(I swear I used to NOT be cheesy but then I got a blog and who knows what happened…)
Disclaimer: I’m not gonna lie I actually ate some of the toasts in these pics before I finished shooting them. It happens…
