Wild Recipe: Apple Chia Jelly

A fast and easy, vegan, paleo jelly made with seasonal fruit!


  • 2 gala apples
  • ¼ cup sweetener of choice, (I used erythritol)
  • ½ cup of water
  • 2 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Peel and core the apples. Dice into ¼ inch cubes.
  2. Combine the apples, sweetener, and water in a small saucepot.
  3. Stir and heat over medium heat.
  4. When the mixture comes to a simmer, cover, and cooks for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove the lid and use a whisk to mix and mash the apples, breaking them down as you go. Do this for 2-3 minutes until the mixture begins to look like jam. I like mine chunky. If you want it smoother, keep cooking down the apples until you have reached the desired consistency.
  6. Stir in the chia seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix well.
  7. Transfer to a clean jar, let it cool, and store it in the fridge.
  8. Spread it over your favorite pancakes, toast, or even on pork loin!
