  • ¾ cup flour
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Paper towels
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Muffin tin


What You Do:

  1. Have your child add the stuffing, apple juice, cranberries and egg into a large mixing bowl and mix them together well.
  2. Next, add the vegetable oil and flour and mix thoroughly.
  3. Lightly grease the muffin tin by drizzling some vegetable oil spreading it around with a paper towel.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and have your child scoop a large spoonful of muffin mix into each muffin tin.
