⁠⠀ Ingredients:⁠⠀ for the crust⁠⠀
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled⁠
  • 3 Tbsp date nectar (can sub sweetener of choice like maple syrup or honey)⁠
  • 1 tsp molasses⁠
  • 1 tsp vanilla⁠
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar⁠
  • 2 cups almond flour⁠
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda⁠
  • 2 Tbsp Let's Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut, reserved⁠⠀
⁠⠀ for the pineapple filling⁠⠀
⁠⠀ Directions⁠⠀ 1. Preheat oven to 350 F. In a bowl, mix together the coconut oil, date nectar, molasses, vanilla, and coconut sugar until well combined. Fold in the almond flour and baking soda until no flour clumps remain⁠⠀ 2. Reserve 2/3 cup of the mixture for the top layer. With the remaining mixture, press into an 8 x 8 baking pan lined with parchment paper. Make sure to press into the corners. Bake in oven for 13 minutes⁠⠀ 3. While the crust is baking, prepare the pineapple filling by first draining the Native Forest Organic Crushed Pineapple. You want the crushed pineapple to be semi-dry for the filling; use a towel to blot if needed. Add the crushed pineapple to a bowl with the coconut sugar and arrowroot powder and mix well⁠⠀ 4. Once the crust has baked, allow to cool for 10 minutes before spreading the pineapple mixture over top. Finish by sprinkling the reserved 2/3 cup of the crust and the Let's Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut on top. Bake in oven for another 15 - 18 minutes. Let cool before cutting into squares
