Buddha Snack Balls
by Chef Tomoko Kominami - Worldwide recognized cook at Grail Springs
I discovered these little gems in a tiny little vegetarian cafe in a local town nearby and asked them if they would be so kind as to share the recipe with me. I've since made these in bunches many times over, freezing them and pulling a few out at a time as a convenient and fulfilling healthy snack to take on the road.

2 Tbl olive oil

Ground pumpkin seeds
