1. Put the cranberries in a small microwave safe bowl. Squeeze 1/4 cup juice from 1 orange into the bowl. Microwave until plump on HIGH, about 45 seconds. Set aside to cool. Grate 1/2 teaspoon of zest from one of the oranges, set aside. Trim the skins and pith from both oranges with a sharp knife; and working over a bowl to catch all their juices, cut oranges into segments.
2. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, whisk the buttermilk, eggs, canola oil, 3 teaspoons Truvia™ natural sweetener and orange zest until smooth. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until just combined. Fold in the plumped cranberries and any juice.
3. Heat a heavy non-stick skillet over medium heat until a drop of water skitters around the pan. Drop 1/4 cups of batter for each pancake into the hot skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the top of each pancake and the bottoms brown, 4 minutes. Flip and cook (adjusting the heat if needed) until other sides is golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Keep pancakes warm.
4. Pour the juice from the orange segments and remaining 3/4 teaspoon Truvia™ natural sweetener into the hot skillet and bring to simmer. Swirl in butter. Add the orange segments and gently toss to coat until glazed, 1 minute. Stir in mint. Top pancakes with the glazed oranges. Serve.
Note: Pancakes can be made the day before and refrigerated in a resealable plastic bag. Reheat on a baking sheet in a 400 degrees F oven until hot and crisp, about 10 minutes.
