Grilled Pineapple Crisp

Thanks ALDI for sponsoring today’s post! 🙂 I love that they carry so many organic, gluten-free and healthy options for me and my readers!

When it feels like it’s a million degrees outside, the last thing I want to do is to turn on the oven. The thing is that I love baked desserts, especially when they’re made with the ripest of summer fruit. 

This grilled pineapple fruit crisp is so easy to make and it’s absolutely delicious too.  The grill helps caramelize the sugars in the pineapple, removing any need to add sweetener. The grilled pineapple literally tastes like sweet and juicy citrus candy:

This nutty crisp is perfect for any special summer occasion or for your everyday backyard bbq. Baking this crisp in a cast iron skillet on the grill means you can make a delicious dessert without turning on your oven on a hot summer day!

We make this on weeknights all the time with a variety of fruit! It’s simple but decadent and can make any night feel special. This crisp works oh so well with just about any fruit: peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums, mangoes, etc. I’m sure it’ll be delicious with crisp autumn apples too once the season changes (let’s not think about that just yet though…).

I found most of the ingredients for this pineapple crisp at my favorite grocery store: ALDI. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m a regular ALDI shopper. I’m always surprised to find new organic and/or gluten-free items every time I walk into their store. I’m in love with their SimplyNature Organic Coconut Oil – I always keep an extra jar in my pantry. During my most recent trip, I found organic almonds for less than $8! I usually buy their regular raw almonds, but if given a choice between organic and not, I’ll always pick organic.

I love the taste of the toasty topping combined with the sweet pineapple. The combination of coconut and pineapple makes it feel nice and tropical. You can serve this with a scoop of (dairy-free) ice cream if you want!

    I made this a couple times last summer when we first started going Paleo. It was scarfed down by all non Paleo family members as well! Looking forward to making it instead of cake for my poor Paleo two-year-old’s birthday.

    My nursing daughter and I are going Paleo per our doctor’s recommendation, and so I made this with almonds and almond flour( we’re still introducing nuts, and pecans haven’t been tried yet)and served it with one ingredient banana ice cream. It was delicious ! I really liked that I wasn’t cheating on my Paleo by putting a bunch of sugar in either . It was all real food, I could serve this bad boy for breakfast if I wanted. Now I’m really excited to try that Paleo chocolate cake you have on your blog.

    I am most definitely making this. Probably 1 for me with pineapple and 1 for my husband with strawberries. He doesn’t do pineapple…and I don’t mind. 😉
