Healthy Truffles

Ingredients:

Flax seeds, chia seeds and sunflower seeds

1 packet of plain or low-fat cream cheese

One white or dark chocolate candy bar

1 packet of Oreo Biscuits for garnish

Method:

Empty the whole pack of flax seeds, chia seeds and sunflower seeds into a Ziplock freezer bag. Following this, you have to smash and break the seeds with your hands or with the help of a rolling pin on the table. Do this till the time until they are even made into a paste with only a few crumbles left. Post this you must add the whole brick of cream cheese into the bag and blend again. Let it cool in the refrigerator for one hour. Once cooled, take equal-sized tiny amounts of dough about a quarter-sized or bigger according to your desire and roll into balls in your hands. By placing the same on a tray, put it in the freezer for about half an hour. While it cools, you must melt any chocolate bar in the microwave or in a pan on the gas. Remove truffles and dip the tops into the melted chocolate. Add Oreo as a garnish. Cool for about 15 minutes to allow it to harden.
