Pineapple Casserole - A low calorie version

I first had eaten pineapple casserole some 10 yrs ago. Our friend's aunt who made that graciously gave me the recipe. It has been one of our favorite over the years. The other day I had got a big pineapple and had guests coming over. So I thought I would make it. But I had to make it a low calorie, low fat option so they would have it. I looked for my options online and found my inspiration. It said half a cup would be around 220 Cal. But I tweaked it further to make it even more healthier. It turned out to be a real winner! Loved by everyone. No compromise on taste and flavor. I might just stick to this for years to come now.
