  • In a food processor, add the slices of pineapple and beat until pureed.
  • Add it to the mixture and mix.
  • Divide the mixture between 2 baking pans that have been lined with parchment paper.
  • Make sure to spread it in as thin a layer as possible so that it can bake evenly.
  • Place both baking pans in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the mixture turns a light golden brown.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow the granola to cool on a wire rack.
  • Store the granola in a well-sealed jar.
