Summary

Chia seeds are a diabetes superfood—they're loaded with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. They also form a gel when added to liquids, so they can help thicken sauces, dressings, and jellies. In this recipes, chia seeds are combined with frozen berries to create a jam-like fruit filling with very little added sugar.
You can make your own crepes or look for premade crepes in the produce sextion of your grocery store for a super easy sweet treat. Or you could use the chia-berry jam to top toast, waffles, or oatmeal for breakfast.

Directions

  1. Place the berries, 1/2 cup of the water, and the chia seeds in the Instant Pot. Seal the lid, close the valve, and set the Manual/Pressure Cook button to 1 minute.

  2. Use a quick pressure release. When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid.

  3. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining 1 Tbsp of water and the cornstarch. Stir until the cornstarch is dissolved.

  4. Press the Cancel button and set to Sauté. Then press the Adjust button to “More” or “High.” Stir the cornstarch mixture into the berries. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute, or until thickened slightly.

  5. Turn off the heat. Stir in 2 Tbsp of the powdered sugar and the almond extract. Place the berry mixture in a medium bowl and let stand for 15 minutes to cool slightly.

  6. Spoon equal amounts of the berry mixture down the center of each crepe (about 1/3 cup per crepe). Fold the ends over to overlap slightly. Spoon the remaining 1 Tbsp of powdered sugar into a fine mesh sieve and sprinkle evenly over each crepe. Top each crepe with 1/4 cup yogurt and serve immediately.
