Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F / 170 C. This is an essential step to ensure your muffins bake evenly. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with muffin liners.
In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and vinegar. Let this mixture sit for about 5 minutes until it curdles, creating a vegan buttermilk.
In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and bright orange zest. Whisk these ingredients together until they are well combined.
Now, add the remaining wet ingredients to the flour mixture. This includes the vegan buttermilk, vanilla extract, and oil. Mix until the batter is smooth, but remember not to over-mix.
Add the dried cranberries to the muffin batter. Carefully fold them in to distribute them evenly throughout the batter.
