Let $\Omega$ and $\tilde{\Omega}$ be domains in the hyperbolic plane with smooth boundary. Assume that both domains are uniformly convex, and have the same area. We show that there exists an area-preserving, orientation-preserving diffeomorphism $f:\Omega \to \tilde{\Omega}$ such that the graph of $f$ is a minimal surface in $\mathbb{H}^2 \times \mathbb{H}^2$. Moreover, we show that the set of all such diffeomorphisms is parametrized by a circle.
