If you are look­ing for a recipe that both you and your fur baby can en­joy to­gether, this recipe fits the bill! While you might like to tuck into th­ese yummy fries while they are hot, just re­mem­ber to let them cool be­fore shar­ing any with your pup­per.


1 large sweet po­tato 1 ta­ble­spoon co­conut oil, melted Spices – Tumeric and Cin­na­mon


Pre­heat oven to 220C and line an oven tray with bak­ing pa­per. Wash and peel the sweet po­tato. Cut the sweet po­tato into evenly sized long skinny (fry shaped) pieces. Us­ing a Zi­ploc bag or large bowl, coat the sweet po­tato strips with the oil and spices. Place the coated fries on the pre­pared bak­ing tray in a sin­gle layer. Bake in the oven for 15 min­utes, then turn the fries over and con­tinue bak­ing for an­other 10-15 min­utes. Let cool be­fore giv­ing any to your dog.
