Baked Pineapple Cups

July 30, 2012


As a rule, I don’t like to turn the oven on in summertime, but when it comes to baked pineapple, I’ll make an exception.

These playful baked pineapple cups are a fun way to dress up breakfast. They’re even sweet enough for dessert. Top with yogurt or whipped cream accordingly.

Ingredients: (makes 4 cups)
2 cups chopped pineapple
2 Tablespoons agave nectar
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 cup rolled oats
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts
2 Tablespoons butter

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, toss the pineapple, lime juice, and agave nectar. Set aside.


In a separate bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats, macadamia nuts, spices, and melted butter.


Line a baking sheet with four baking cups. Fill with the pineapple mixture. (If you don’t have baking cups, use a small baking dish instead.)


Then top with the oat and sugar mixture.


Bake for 20 minutes, until topping is nicely browned.



I love the tender, sweet pineapple with the crispy, spiced topping.


All you need is a little yogurt and a spoon.

Hi there! I just found your blog and you have a new fan! :D just a quick question, what can one use as a substitute for the agave syrup? I don’t think it’s available where I come from :/

If you can’t find agave, use honey instead. Good luck and than you for your comment!

I love all of the ingredients in this – it sounds so different but SO good! I never think to bake with pineapple so this is a must-try for sure! :)
