No Grain Waffles with Blackberry Jam

Enjoy this delicious no grain waffles made with Birch Benders Paleo Mix and topped with a simple jam made with frozen blackberries and chia seeds, no need for extra sugar.

I love Saturday mornings so much. We usually stick to the same morning routine which is going for a run to the National mall followed by a delicious brunch, which almost every Saturday it involves waffles. If you follow me on instagram @marianadiezcoach or have checked my last couple of recipes you would probably notice 1 out of 5 is a waffle recipe. But we just love waffles so much. Honestly, we crave them the whole week, well at least me!

This is my first time trying Birch Benders Paleo Mix and I highly recommend it! First of all it is so simple to prepare. All you need s water and coconut oil. As for the taste they are great and the perfect balance of fluffy and crispy just the way you want your waffles.

And then for a twist I topped them with these delicious blackberry jam. I know when I say homemade jam it might sound kind of intimidating and you might just think why not just get store bought jam. I don’t want to burst your bubble but most of the time commercial jams are loaded with sugar. Plus once you try the real deal you won’t want to get the store bought version.

How to Make Blackberry Jam

To make the jam all you need to do is heat a stovetop on medium heat, then add your frozen blackberries or any frozen fruit you like. Cover and let the mixture defrost. Once the berries are defrosted and soft, use a potato masher o mash up the mixture to your desired consistency. I like some texture in my jam, so I don’t mash it much. Add the chia seeds and continue to simmer for about 3-4 more minutes. Store leftover jam in the refrigerator, covered, for about 1 week.

Enjoy!
