Had a really busy but productive weekend. In the midst of a cleaning frenzy – came across a copy of Natural Dog magazine and found this great recipe – Baked Yam Chips.
The recipe calls for either yams or sweet potatoes. Side note: I always wondered the difference between the two since people often use them interchangeably and thought this would be a good time to get down to the bottom of it. Answer: they are different; yams actually have more natural sugar. Who knew?!
Below is a copy of the recipe from the magazine.
Recipe from Natural Dog
I made a few adjustments to the recipe:
- Used 1 sweet potato.
- Skipped the cinnamon.
Verdict: These are delish!
This pic is a little blurry because Chunyo devoured his chip! Any good recipes that you have discovered recently?
Chunyo recently received a great gift – Chillin’ Bonz
. Chillin’ Bonz are bone shaped frozen treat trays. They are really cool and super easy to make treats with. The package also comes with easy recipes too. I used the Peanutbutterbone recipe but it also comes with a number of other recipes (e.g., Kiwiberry Yum, Barking Wild Fruit Treat). Great treats for the warm weather!
Here is the front of the box
The actual trays
The pink part is great because it makes it easier to take the frozen bones out.
Pic of the recipe we used
We used left over peanut from the organic peanut butter from treats we made for Chunyo. We used half of a small container of organic plain yogurt instead of vanilla yogurt.
This is what the mix looked like. I ended up adding just a little more yogurt than I expected. I do get curious about Chunyo’s taste buds sometimes, so I tried a bit. Human opinion: Good – not that my opinion is what matters 🙂

Perfect Shaped Bone!
Walaa!! Dog’s verdict: Delicious! Bone gone in a flash….
