In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Cut in butter spread until coarse crumbs are formed. Stir in cranberries and lemon juice. Add buttermilk, stirring until mostly mixed. Knead 5-10 times until ingredients are combined and no longer dry.
Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Press scone mixture into an 8 inch circle. Cut to, but not thorough to form 8 triangles.
