Pineapple Bars

Pineapple Bars with Olive Oil Crust

We have come to the end of our Virtual Potluck  Healthy New Year Challenge with Bob’s Red Mill and California Olive Ranch, and the perfect ending is of course dessert.  I had never baked with olive oil before.  You can in fact substitute olive for butter in many recipes.

I first thought about a pie and then I decide bars were much quicker and easier.  As busy as this week has been, that suited me quite well.  This week has been anything but boring.  I drove the tractor down a narrow road with steep banks without running over any cows or tipping the tractor over, helped build corrals, fell in the mud.  Hey what’s a day stomping in the mud if you don’t fall down?  That’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

I have to say I was a little unsure if the guys would like this dessert, but in fact they ate most of it before I could even get supper on the table.  I asked them to please save some for the pictures!

I have thoroughly enjoyed cooking with the whole grains and olive oil this month.  I have added some new foods to my pantry and will continue to cook with these great ingredients from the  Healthy New Year Challenge and I hope you will be inspired to do the same.

This weeks giveaway for the featured products are Bob’s Red Mill Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and California Olive Ranch Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

These bars look fantastic! Could you use fresh pineapple rather than the canned pineapple? If so, would there be any change in the cooking time?
