Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

3/4 cup frozen sweet corn kernels, thawed

3/4 cup yellow cornmeal

3/4 cup (about 6 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

3/4 cup fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt

1/3 cup + 1 tbsp. unsweetened vanilla almond milk, divided

1/3 cup natural no-calorie sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar

2 1/4 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. salt

1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped

1 tbsp. + 1/8 tsp. orange zest, divided

3 tbsp. powdered sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line a 24-cup mini muffin pan with foil baking cups, or spray it with nonstick spray.

In a blender, pulse oats to the consistency of coarse flour. Reserve 1 tbsp. milk for drizzle. Add all remaining ingredients except cranberries, orange zest, and powdered sugar. Blend until just smooth and uniform, stopping and stirring if needed. (Do not over-blend.)

Gently stir in cranberries and 1 tbsp. orange zest. Transfer to the pan, and smooth out the tops. (Cups will be full.) Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 12–14 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar with remaining 1 tbsp. milk and 1/8 tsp. orange zest. Mix well. Drizzle over muffins.
