Pineapple-Ginger Crisp

If you love apple or peach crisp, you’re going to love this one even more!


Once you have prepared the pineapple, place it in a bowl along with the lime, ginger and salt and toss to combine, along with the cornstarch. Place in a 8-9” baking pan (or several smaller ones if you are making individual portions like I did below).PineappleGingerLimeCrisp2

  1. This has been my go-to desert since being diagnosed with CD as friends and family do not recognize it as “that gluten free stuff”. I have used many different combinations of fruit including raspberries, blueberries blackberries, rhubarb and cranberries with the addition of an apple to each mix. I never thought of using pineapple so thank you for the suggestion. I am looking forward to trying it soon.

    I use a recipe like this for pear crisp, rhubarb/raspberry, peach, tart cherry, apple and blueberry. It tastes different every time!

  4. I was puzzled at first because it said gluten free change from apples to pineapple but the apples are not the part that has the gluten. Pineapple does sound good though. I make my crumble using oatmeal, brown sugar and ground nuts (no flour) and of course the usual flavorings and a combo of butter and coconut oil. Tastes delicious
