Keto Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam Recipe

We just made a delightful Keto Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam Recipe!!  Hello keto toast with rhubarb chia seed jam!

Have you tried chia seeds yet?  Chia seeds are packed with fiber and perfectly keto friendly.  They don’t have sugar either so it’s a fantastic way to add extra fiber to your diet without the carbs and sugar that fruit adds.  You might have already enjoyed our Easy Chia Seed Pudding recipe.  It’s a popular recipe on the blog for sure!  You might have also tried our Keto Chocolate Pudding (made with chia seeds) or our Keto Overnight Chia Oatmeal Recipe.  There are many ways you can enjoy chia seeds on the keto diet.  I always keep chia seeds stocked in my pantry and I use them often.

If you don’t care for the chia seeds, you can make this Keto Rhubarb Sauce recipe instead without the chia seeds.

 

The next ingredient is rhubarb!  It’s in season and it’s a wonderful option while doing keto!

Here’s a bit about Rhubarb if you’ve never tried it.

What is Rhubarb?

Rhubarb is a celery lookalike but red in color.  Rhubarb is a vegetable derived from cultivated plants in the genus Rheum in the family Polygonaceae. The whole plant – a herbaceous perennial growing from short, thick rhizomes – is also called rhubarb. Historically, different plants have been called “rhubarb” in English. Wikipedia

How does Rhubarb taste?

Rhubarb tastes tart.

Is Rhubarb sweet?

No, but you can add keto sweetener to it to make a delightful treat.

Is Rhubarb keto friendly?

Yes!  Rhubarb is totally keto friendly!   A ½-cup serving contains about 1.7 g of net carbs and only about 13 calories!

Are Rhubarb leaves edible?

No.  You cannot eat the rhubarb leaves.  They are not digestible.  Rhubarb leaves have high levels of oxalic acid that can damage your kidneys and even lead to death if ingested in very high levels.

How many different ways can you eat Rhubarb?

You can enjoy rhubarb raw, roasted, or puréed in a small, low-carb or keto friendly smoothie or moderate portion of sauce because it’s low in calories and carbs.

Can you freeze Rhubarb?

Yes, you can!  I would cut the stalks into 1 inch pieces and then freeze on a tray spread out until they are slightly solid.  Then I would put them in a freezer container.  Rhubarb can be frozen for up to 1 year.

Where to buy Rhubarb?

I was able to pick some up at my local Randal’s grocery store.  I would call ahead though because my local HEB grocery store did not carry it.  I have not seen Rhubarb at Costco either.

 

Now that you know a bit about Rhubarb, you have got to try this simple Keto Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam Recipe!

We served this sugar free jam on top of a Keto Sweet Bread chaffle with cream cheese spread and topped with Keto Rhubarb Chia Seed Jam!  This is my new favorite breakfast!  We have tons of keto chaffle recipes for you to try too!  They are a wonderful option for bread replacement while doing the keto diet.

Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • Cut off the top and bottom parts of the rhubarb stalk.  Dice the rhubarb into 1/2 inch cubes.  If the outer layer is too tough, you can peel that off and discard it.
  • Use a large frying pan over medium heat, add all of the ingredients.
  • Cook it until it starts to steam and then reduce the heat to a simmer.
  • Stir the rhubarb to combine all the ingredients.
  • After about 10 minutes the rhubarb will start to soften.  You should be tender enough to smash with with a fork.
  • Take a small spoonful and cool it down.  Taste a small amount of the sauce to make sure it is at the sweetness you prefer.  Be careful because it's really hot!
  • Add more sweetener if needed.  Using a spoon mix the sweetener in until it's fully incorporated.
  • You can use a potato masher to soften the rhubarb for a smoother texture.  If you prefer an extra smooth jam with chunks of chia seed, I would add the rhubard jam to the blender before adding the chia seeds.
  • Blend the rhubarb jam on high for 30 seconds.
  • After the rhubarb mixture has blended, add the chia seeds.
  • Pour the rhubarb chia jam into mason jars.  Leave the jars uncovered until it fully cools.  This Rhubarb Chia Seed jam will thicken as it cools.
  • Add the lids to the mason jars and store the rhubarb chia seeds jam in the refrigerator for up to two weeks!  The lemon juice in this recipe helps keep it fresh longer.
