Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and place the pineapple slices on top.
  3. In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle on top of the pineapple. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown around the edges.
  4. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the yogurt and honey and stir until smooth. In individual bowls, place two slices of pineapple, top with a dollop of yogurt, and sprinkle with coconut.
