From the chef, Kerry Ogden:
"When I taught raw food at the Tree of Life, my mantra to students was 'It’s always edible.' That’s beauty of raw. It’s hard to ruin. This recipe is a classic example. Snack bars didn’t stick? No problem! Call it a crumble, whip up some chia cream and you’re set to mix and match a medley of meals.
Swirl a dollop of chia cream in your morning smoothie or eat it plain as pudding. Top the crumble on soaked raw oats or add more tahini and roll into calcium-rich, energy balls. Or, go all out, and make this delicious fresh fruit parfait. Pear is pictured, but many fruits will work wonderfully - think peaches, plums, and cherries."
