by | April 23, 2019

I’m beyond excited for Avengers Endgame to come out and I’m sure that your kids (and maybe even yourself!) are just as excited to see what will happen during this 3-hour long film about the aftermath of Thanos’ plan to wipe out the planet, and hopefully the successful takedown of this MCU villain at the hands of some of our favorite Avengers. So while the energy and excitement are running high, why not try cooking something that matches up with the mood? Here’s hulk inspired matcha green tea vegan cupcakes that you and your kids would love.

In preparation for the film, packing a lot of delicious snacks to take to the movie with you is a great way to cut down on money spent at the theatre. Even better, this treat would be great back home after seeing the film. Bruce Banner/The Hulk is one of my favorite Marvel characters so it only makes sense to tribute him in the form of a delicious and very slightly healthy cupcake! Keep reading to see how you can make Hulk inspired matcha green tea vegan cupcakes for your Avengers Endgame night.

  3. Add in your wet ingredients (chia seed “eggs”, almond milk, vegetable oil, apple cider vinegar, vanilla) and mix together well using a hand mixer or a standing mixer.
  4. In a cupcake pan with cupcake liners (purple are the best to look like the traditional Hulk’s pants!), fill in the batter and cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Let cool completely on a baking rack before frosting.

For the frosting
