Preheat the oven to 180°C.
In a large bowl, cream the marg and sugar until light and fluffy, add the vanilla and then pour the egg whites bit by bit beating continuously until combined.
Add all the remaining ingredients into the bowl and stir until well combined, damp and sticky.
Squash into small balls and place onto a greased baking tray.
Press the balls down with fork.
Bake for 10 minutes then reduce the temperature to 170°C and bake for a further 10 minutes. Allow to cool.

Other ideas:
Replace seeds with 250 ml of dessicated coconut(this will increase the fat content though).
Add some cinnamon or all spice to the mixture if you like.
Replace the cranberries with any other dried fruit, eg. sultanas, raisins, chopped dates etc.
