Sweet Potato Treats

Simple recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 250°
  • Wash potatoes
  • Slice into approximately .25 inch slices
  • Place on ungreased baking sheet (I covered sheet with parchment paper)
  • Bake for 2 hours; turn over half way through

I recently purchased an inexpensive, basic mandolin and decided to try it with this recipe. It made very nice chip-like slices that both the dogs and humans appreciated. Next time I would probably use a knife to make thicker slices for the dogs.

These treats store nicely in an air-tight container.

  1. I make these for my pit mix girl too – she is allergic to grains and these are a great alternative to the biscuits she can’t have, as well as expensive beef/chicken/venison liver treats that she can have. So inexpensive too, they’re great!

    • They are definitely good and the dogs love them! My only issue is that my mandolin isn’t adjustable and the slices were very thin like chips. Next time I would cut by hand and make them thicker.

  2. I’m going to have to give these a try!! Big Girl, my blue nose, has skin allergies and I still have to pinpoint what exactly it’s from. We’ve tried every grain free brand of dog food there is on the market with no luck. I think I am going to start making her food soon after researching the benefits of it.

    • At least with homemade you have control over ingredients. We’ve been very lucky that none of our dogs have allergies but I understand how frustrating it can be. The other nice part about homemade treats is that it isn’t a big financial investment. Good luck!
