1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 cup egg substitute
2 Tbsp . yogurt cheese
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/4 cup non-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tsp. orange zest
1/3 cup cranberries

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Using a whisk, cream together the reduced-fat spread, Splenda and egg substitute until smooth. Add the yogurt cheese and vanilla extract while whisking.

Place the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a sifter and sift into the mixing bowl. Add the cranberries to the bowl making sure that they are separated.

Gently fold the creamed mixture together with the flour mixture. As this is blended slowly add the buttermilk and orange juice blending after each until smooth. As soon as the mixture is well blended, stop.

Line a standard size muffin tin with 6 muffin papers and fill each muffin paper with an equal amount of batter. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes.
