I turned my sweet juicy pineapple into a Tropical Crisp today! I used my pineapple pic to encourage all you mamas that you’re awesome at what you do: Pineapple Motivation.
Then, I turned it into a dessert (I guess motivating others gives me a sweet tooth, who knows?!). We ate a little of the pineapple before turning into a Tropical Crisp. Pineapple is so sweet and cheery.
Now, my belly doesn’t like alot of flour these days, so I have been trying to make recipes with flour substitutes. So, this is why you will see me use coconut flour. But, that just adds to the tropically-ness of this recipe!
How to Make a Tropical Crisp
- 1 pineapple or a can of pineapple chunks drained should work
- 2 bananas
- 2 TB of coconut flour
- 3 TB almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 TB maple syrup
- 1/2 TB cinnamon
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3 TB maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 TB unsalted butter
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Cube the butter. Put into a bowl.
- Combine the rest of the crumb topping ingredients in the bowl with the butter and mash and stir with a fork until crumbly. Set it aside.
- Cut and core the pineapple into chunks (see chop pic above). Put it into a 9×13 baking dish.
- Peel and slice the bananas (see chop pic above). Put it into the baking dish with the pineapples.
- Add the rest of the filling ingredients to the baking dish and stir it all up until its well combined (see sprinkle pic above).
- Then spread the filling evenly on the bottom of the baking dish.
- Next, top the filling with the crumb topping evenly (see the top pic above).
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown (see the bake pic above).
- Let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve and Enjoy!
This can be served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! So good! I have also done this recipe with peaches. So, instead of the pineapple, use peaches. It’s amazing that way too!
If you don’t have coconut flour, you may use regular all-purpose flour. I usually make it that way, but my belly doesn’t like it.
Enjoy the Tropical Crisp!
After you make the dessert, snap a pic and let me know how you like it on social media! Tag me @themamaworkshop! I’d love to see how you dish it up!
