If the oil and flour were of healthy choices and the pineapple had no added sugar, it would probably be good. Good to see that sugar was not on the list.

I would be fearful that if I made that, though, I would eat too much of it.

Best to not even think about it for me.

That seems like a lot of oil. I wonder if substituting half applesauce would work? I do that (the applesauce) with a carrot cake recipe that was too oily for me as it was originally written and it is great! Other than that, it sounds really good!

hmmm, not sure. It is 3 cups of flour but it does seem like a bit too much oil,, as there will be some liquid from the crushed tomatoes and well drained of not there will be some moisture from the pineapple.... but the applesauce might taste nice in with those ingredients.
