Banana matcha mini owl cakes

I bought this awesome silicone muffin mold from the Christmas market, it was just too cute!  Owls have been a theme at our house lately 🙂


Makes 10 cute owls (mini cakes)

1 2/3 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon matcha powder

3 tsp cocoa powder

5 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tsp flax seeds

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup orange juice

3 bananas mashed up * I used frozen bananas

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

IMG_0049This time I kinda put everything in at once. I added the wet stuff first and then added the dry ingredients.

I put the frozen bananas in a bowl and let them thaw a little bit. Then added an egg, orange juice, vanilla extract, salt and sugar. Mixed it for a minute in my Kitchenaid.

When the banana mixture looked good I added flour mixed with baking powder, matcha, flax seeds and cocoa powder. Mixed at medium speed for 2-3 minutes.

IMG_0026Final step. I sprayed the molds with oil and added 2 tablespoonfuls into the owls. It’s about 3/4 of an owl 🙂

IMG_0028Bake for 350 F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.

They are not overly calorie rich, it contains bananas and flax seeds, so you can say they are pretty healthy 🙂
