Snowman Poop or Reindeer Turds

Here is an energy packed holiday treat that won't bog you down or send you into sugar coma.  Kids love the funny names of these truffles, and won't ever know they are eating healthy fats, whole grains, and antioxidants, without any processed sugars.

1 1/2 cup whole rolled oats
1/3 cup ground flaxseed
16oz all natural peanut butter or almond butter
1/2 cup honey or agave nectar
1 cup dark chocolate chips, or 1 dark chocolate bar, broken into pieces
dried coconut or sesame seeds

Grind oats in a blender or food processor until they become powdery.  In a large bowl combine oats and ground flax seed.  Add nut butter and honey and mix well.  Roll batter into bite size balls.  In a saucepan or double boiler, melt chocolate over medium-low heat.  Remove from heat.  Dip each ball in chocolate and then roll in coconut, sesame seeds, OR cocoa powder.  Store truffles in an airtight container.  Can be refrigerated or frozen for future snacks.
