Why make homemade pet treats?
Not only is it way more economical to make a batch of dog treats, but you know exactly what’s going in to them.
Made with no preservatives or additives, these dog treats are mad with just natural and healthy ingredients.
How to store
Once your sweet potato dog treats are fully cooled, place them in an airtight container. They will keep for several weeks at room temperature.
Should you peel the sweet potatoes?
Yes, always remove the skin of the sweet potatoes as these can be difficult for your dig to digest.
You can peel the sweet potatoes and cook them in boiling water until tender, or you can roast them and then peel them. Then you just need to mash them up and mix with the other ingredients.
- I used a bone shaped cookie cutter for these treats, but you can use whatever you have to hand.
- Let the sweet potato dog treats cool fully before giving them to your dog or storing.
- These are treats and not meant to replace your dogs regular meals.

How long can these be refrigerated for and then how long will they be good in the freezer for ??
They will stay good in the fridge for up to 2 months, or you can freeze them for up to 8 months!
Can I substitute whole wheat flour with almond or oat flour?
Love these treats!
Is there a way to possibly incorporate Peanut Butter into this?
I think your best bet would be to replace some of the sweet potato with peanut butter.
Here is the outcome of the 1st batch that cooked almost 40 mins. with a 1/8 inch cut cookie.
Ok I make all of my furry companion’s food including treats. I didn’t give 5 stars because I wasn’t certain of this 1/8 inch cookie cooking for 40 mins. Since I usually follow a 1st time recipe to the T, I went for 40 mins. and I decided to take them out 8 mins early because they looked burnt. I used the other half of the divided dough for another batch, took them out in 25 mins. one side is a bit dark but doable. My question is, are these supposed to be like this cause I have purchased on line BARK and PUMPKIN treats that were more like chips. I believe this would be a good recipe if tweeked to my pups standards, cooked done but not charred.
Thanks for sharing with us!
Here is an update on these “chips” She loves them even charred ones. I am adding 5 stars because she loves them as is but next time I just won’t cook them as long. O and FYI, I put some in the fridge and they softened up except for the really dark ones, they’re like good wood lol. . I have more in the freezer. Thank you!
Our two hounds love them ~ even tho’ I forgot the apple sauce!!
Thanks for sharing.
Sounds like a success!
Beebe is toothless, the sweet potato cookies are a little bit soft inside. Perfect for him, we are sharing at his 8th birthday party tonight, I made one big sheetpan cookie and scored it in pieces, because I have arthritis in my hands, cant roll and cut shapes any more.
Such a handy hack to make sure you can do it!
I have the sweet potato cookies in the oven, not fed to my dog so no rating yet, but did I miss something in the recipe? It says divide the dough in half, what then? Only roll out 1/2 dough?
I made a big sheet pan cookie ,scored.
Can I use regular white flour or almond flour instead of wheat flour?
Wheat is best for the pups!
You would have to adjust the recipe i fusing almond flour. It requires more eggs to hold it together.
So easy to make and they love them. I did add 1/2 cup of oats since I doubled the mashed sweet potatoes and applesauce. This made it just perfect. Definitely will make again!!
Thanks for sharing, Robyn!
