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!

  2. Ok, I’ll have to save this somewhere…I love making treats for Trev!!!! These look good and crunchy too, to make them chew instead of…gulping…them down!!!!

    • 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.

  3. 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!
