Blackberry Chia Jam and Almond Loaf (Vegan/ low -sugar)

I have baked another loaf! It is starting to become a little of a signature dish on my page! I just love the convenience of the bread/loaf tin and I have many recipe ideas for some yummy loaves. 

Yesterday was a runny Sunday and there is nothing better to do than baking on a day like this. I have been craving some chia jam and I thought I would make blackberry chia jam as blackberry jam used to be my favourite. If you haven't tried chia jam before I highly recommend you try it and not just for the loaf. it is delicious on toast and on porridge too! 

Apart from baking I have been busy searching for a new home in our new town but so far no luck. We have meet a few lovely mums and kiddies so far and the twins are enjoying their new life. They have really progressed with their vocabulary (in both French and English) lately.



Blackberry Chia Jam and Almond Loaf:

Blackberry chia jam:

  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen blackberries (I used frozen sadly)
  • 1 tbsp of maple syrup (more if needed)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp of water
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  1. In a pot, cook the blackberries with the water on medium heat until they become soft.
  2. Crush them with the back of a spoon and add in the vanilla, maple syrup and chia seeds. Turn off the heat and leave to set in a jar. 
Loaf:
  • 1 cup of wholemeal (whole-wheat) flour
  • 1/2 cup of quick oats
  • 1/2 cup of almond meal
  • 1 cup of nut milk
  • 1/4 cup of stevia or sweetener of your choice
  • 1 tsp of vanilla essence
  • 2 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of chia jam



  1. Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. In a bowl mix the nut milk, baking powder and apple cider vinegar. Leave for a minute.
  3. Add in the flour, almond meal, oats, sweetener and vanilla. 
  4. Mix all together and pour into your tin.
  5. Top with dollops of chia jam and mix through with a knife. 
  6. Cook for 45-60 minutes at 175 degree.
I tried to make some swirls but failed. Maybe you will have better luck than me!
