Raspberry-Jam Bites Will Forever Change Your Snack Game


It doesn't get easier, or more delicious, than this simple, three-ingredient snack. Chia seeds and raspberries add fiber to these healthy frozen bites. Chocolate provides a touch of sweetness to balance the tartness of the berries.

  • 16 ounces fresh raspberries (about 4 cups) or 3 1/2 cups frozen raspberries

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 12 ounces dark chocolate (60-70%), chopped


  1. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Place raspberries and chia seeds in a large bowl. Mash with a fork until the mixture is jammy. (If using frozen raspberries, add 1/4 cup water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the berries are loosened.) Scoop the mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Freeze for at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

  2. Line another baking sheet with parchment paper. Microwave chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stopping to stir after each interval. (Alternatively, place chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water; stir until melted.)

  3. Remove the raspberry bites from the freezer. Using a fork, hold one bite over the melted chocolate and use a spoon to lightly coat it, allowing excess chocolate to drip back into the bowl. Spoon about 1 teaspoon melted chocolate onto the parchment paper and place the coated bite on top. Repeat the process with the remaining bites. Use a spoon or fork to drizzle the tops of the bites with the remaining chocolate, if desired. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
