To begin making Citrus Bites I dumped brown sugar, melted margarine, orange juice, lemon juice, almond milk, orange zest, lemon zest and one large egg into a large mixing bowl.

I used a wire whisk to beat these ingredients together.

Then I added in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour that I had sifted and spooned into the measuring cup.  I do this to make sure I do not use more flour than needed.

I also measured in some baking powder and some salt.

Next I used the wire whisk again to incorporate all the dry ingredients.

Then I placed my two silicone egg bite molds onto a cookie sheet and sprayed them with cooking spray.

I carefully scooped the batter into the molds filling them about 3/4 full.

I placed the cookie sheet in a preheated 350F oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the Citrus Bites came out clean.

After allowing the Citrus Bites to cool in the molds for about 10 minutes I inverted them onto a cooling rack.

When they were completely cooled I dusted them with icing sugar.

Citrus Bites are a nice, easy dessert.  Perfect after a big meal because of their light fluffy texture and small size!

If you have a chocolate craving you need to satisy as well, you could make a quick batch of chocolate glaze.
