Coffee Almond Butter Energy Balls

Kathleen made these for snacks this week.  She and Jenna really like them.
Coffee Almond Butter Energy Balls

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder (or ground flaxseed) Beth used flax seed
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup maple syrup (or honey)

In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, protein powder, salt, and coffee.

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the almond butter and maple syrup. Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave for 20 seconds, or until mixture is easily combined when stirred. Stir until fully incorporated.

Add almond butter mixture to oat mixture. Stir until mixed.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

When dough is firm, roll into 20 balls.
