Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray, or fill pan with paper liners.
  2. Combine flour, oats, 1/4 cup of sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; mix well with a fork, make a well in the centre and set aside.
  3. Whisk together yogurt, milk, egg substitute, margarine and vanilla in a small bowl. Fold mixture into dry ingredients until blended; fold in cranberries. Spoon batter into prepared pan, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes; sprinkle tops of muffins with remaining tablespoon of sugar. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in centre of a muffin comes out clean, about 5 minutes more. Allow to cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely.
