Print Recipe


  • 1 cup cooked mashed sweet potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour plus more for rolling dough


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Add sweet potatoes, eggs, applesauce to a mixing bowl and mix well. Stir in flour. Mixture will be stiff and sometimes it's easier to mix with your hands than to bend a metal spoon.
  • Divide dough in half and roll onto a surface covered with additional flour until about 1/8" thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes and place onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until dry and crispy. Remove from oven. let stand on baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to completely cool on a cooling rack.
  • Serve when cooled or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator until ready to use.


Makes 50 large treats.
  • 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.
