Now be honest. You knew this was going to happen.

Because Pineapple Squares and Pineapple Meatballs and Pineapple Fruit Dip and Pineapple Salsa on Chicken Tacos. I am a pineapple fanatic!

But you already knew that.

I’m not actually sure where I got this idea, but I’m so glad I did! I’d seen some recipes for warm pineapple sundaes and grilled pineapple and I had never actually had warm pineapple in any kind of dessert. But people raved about it, and so I thought, “what better than warm pineapple with crunchy brown sugar streusel and melty vanilla ice cream?!”

The answer? Not too much.

I have a big thing for crisps of all kind. This Berry Cherry Crisp from last summer and if you know me at all, you know I’ve Apple Crisped pretty much everything: pancakes, cookies, cinnamon buns, doughnuts, french toast, smoothies, and the list goes on.


  • This an easily gluten free dessert if you use certified gluten free oats. Be sure to double check if you’re cooking for people with allergies.
  • I made this recipe twice, once with half the streusel, and once as the recipe now is. If you’re looking to cut out some calories/sugar/etc, you could easily halve the streusel recipe and you wouldn’t lose out on too much. Me? I like a lot of streusel.

    Pineapple crisp taken to the next level adds high quality chopped white chocolate (like. Recipe created by Jim Dodge back in the 90’s when he was pastry chef at the Stanford Court hotel in SF. I took a one day class with him and that was one of the things we made. Try it. It doesn’t sound good but it’s fab!
