Healthy Three-Ingredient Chia Seed Marmalade

Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 15 mins


  • 4 oranges
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds


  • Peel the oranges and put the insides into a small saucepan. Don't worry about chopping them up - the heat will break down the oranges completely.
  • Turn the heat up to medium and cook the oranges for 10 minutes, until they start to soften.
  • Add in the honey and stir. Cook the mixture for another 5 minutes, constantly mashing the oranges with the back of a spoon to help them break down.
  • When the oranges have totally broken down and you've got a sauce-like consistency, turn off the heat and stir in the chia seeds.
  • Pour the marmalade into a small sterilised jar and leave to cool to room temperature for at least two hours before screwing the lid on and storing in the fridge.


If you hate orange pith, carefully take your oranges apart and make sure there's none of the white stuff before you place them in the saucepan in order to have pith-free marmalade.
This chia seed marmalade will store well inside a sealed container in the fridge for up to one month.
