Easy Pineapple Crisp

An easy dessert made with pineapples and a crisp oat topping…




Last year when I had gone to visit my sister in US, our most frequent trips were the ones to Dollar Store. Azza absolutely loved them because they were a literal heaven for her, as far as craft supplies are concerned. I must say that one trolley of ours was only her DS hauls. Hehe… I found some very interesting small recipe magazines that had some very easy recipes in them, and since they were just dollar one, I had to pick them. Just like many things with me, they were pushed into my book shelf and got touched only when we pulled out the books to do cleaning. My eyes fell on a recipe that was called “Blueberry Crinkle”, which looked like a basic crisp recipe. I decided to use canned pineapples instead of the blueberries and make it as weekend dessert.


All you need for this recipe is canned pineapple, oats and some very little ingredients to make the topping. I would call this a nice guilt-free dessert, since it is not high on butter or sugar and has fruit in it. 😀 I will never agree to anyone who says fruits aren’t good. They are nature’s candy to enjoy. Why simply give it a bad name! 😉 Canned pineapples are generally sweeter and hence the sugar used is less. However, if you consider using fresh pineapples, you may need to consider upping your sugar in this recipe. This is my next post for this month’s Bakeathon with a sub-theme of “Main ingredients 5 or less”.
