Grilled Pineapple with Cinnamon Coconut Sugar

This is one of my daughter’s most favourite desserts ever! In fact she asks for this more than ice cream and that’s a miracle in itself let me tell you!

I always had this aversion to cooked fruit…cooked pineapple?  Are you kidding me?! But I tried it at one of those all you can eat meat BBQ restaurants, and I was converted. Now every time we make it, I am reminded at how scrumptious it is. It’s tropical and so summery, not to mention easy!

Grilled pineapple?  Yes.  Please.  Get in ma belly!

Grilled Pineapple with Cinnamon Coconut Sugar

Another great thing about it, is it’s fast to make.  It would be great to serve at summer BBQ parties.


Grilled Pineapple with Cinnamon Coconut Sugar


  • 1 fresh pineapple (trimmed and cut into chunks (we cut our the length of the pineapple))
  • coconut sugar (or regular brown sugar – see tips)
  • cinnamon


  1. Preheat your BBQ to a medium-high heat.
  2. Coat the cut pineapple in the sugar & cinnamon (we use it generously).
  3. When you are ready to BBQ, lightly oil the surface of the grill.
  4. BBQ the pineapple for approximately 15 minutes, searing all sides. Just watch it and make sure it doesn’t burn. Depending on the thickness and size of your pineapple, it could take less or more time than I have suggested.
  5. Serve on it’s own, or with ice cream!


You don’t have to use coconut sugar, you can just use regular brown sugar (both taste delicious). I just found a package of coconut sugar at our Homesense store and wanted to try it. It’s sweet like sugar, and doesn’t taste like coconut. Apparently it’s supposed to have more nutrition than regular sugar. It claims to have B vitamins, and other minerals. It’s also apparently known for it’s low glycemic index. Who knows. But it did taste good!

  1. I just had a bbq this past weekend and we grilled pineapples but I wish I came across your blog earlier so I could have tried this recipe out. I love coconuts and pineapples! Never thought combining these two on the grill.

    I stumbled upon your blog through the Sundae Scoop Link Party. I really like your layout!

    Love and Whimsy

  2. Love your blog! I’m pinning your recipe, for sure! I love grilled pineapples, but have never thought to cover in cinnamon, and never even heard of coconut sugar. Will look for that at my local Whole Foods soon! TFS. Would u mind if I show off your recipe today on my blog? I will give you props and link to your blog. LOVE IT!

  3. Awesome recipe. I’m going to try this. We produce coconut sugar and so far, it was being used just as a sweetener for tea & coffee. But recipes like this one opens up completely new areas to experiment coconut sugar.

  4. Oh this looks right up my ally! Sounds amazing! I’ve never heard of coconut sugar but I’m sure I’d love it because I adore coconut! I’m visiting from my sister’s blog HomeStoriesAtoZ!
