Oh, and dreaming that I’m in Hawaii, far far away from the cold snow and blustery winds that Colorado has been cooking up for me lately.
I’ve been dreaming of the beach for going on 4 months now and pineapple? Pineapple is this pregnant lady’s vehicle to get there. Well, that and my imagination. Obviously I can’t drive, fly, or ride a pineapple over the Hawaii.
Unless that is you know of a way to do so…then by all means share. I’m not opposed to travel at 8.5 months pregnant!
Anyway, make this today. Pretend you’re on vacation…you and me, hanging out, reading ridiculous celebrity gossip beachside with a Mai Tai in one hand and a plate of pineapple in the other!
- 1 whole pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1-inch pieces
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Preheat your oven to 375. In a big bowl toss together the pineapple, 2 Tbsp flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon and stir until the flour is coating all of the pineapple. Pour into a buttered 9×9 baking dish. In another bowl combine the oats, 1/4 cup flour, sugar, butter and salt, and using your fingers press the butter into the ingredients until the final mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly on top of the pineapple. Bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes until the pineapple is bubbly and the top is golden brown. Devour.
