Who doesn’t love a little bit of sweet raspberry jam in their life? I sure do! But I don’t love the sugar and preservatives that come along for the ride, so I wanted to create a healthy home made version.

You will only need a few ingredients to whip up this recipe and there is absolutely zero cooking required (the microwave doesn’t count right?!). This is a low sugar jam that can easily be made keto friendly by subbing the maple syrup for your favourite sugar free sweetener. My sugar free sweetener of choice is usually this stevia blend because it’s free from crap and sold in large bags at a good price.

I used frozen raspberries as they are cheaper, however fresh berries can definitely be used in this recipe. Once heated in the microwave you just need a fork and some elbow grease to get mashing!

Personally, I like to save my sugar intake for gelato and visits to my Gran’s house. Thankfully, there’s no need to go without sweet raspberry jam if I have this stored in the fridge. What are you waiting for? Whip some up today!
