Have you ever actually looked closely at the ingredients in store bought sweet potato treats? Our Walmart removed a bunch of them off the shelves for a recall a while back, and that made me really think about what we are feeding our dogs. Our dogs LOVE sweet potatoes, so I decided to make my own. You can make them with just ONE ingredient. You guessed it, sweet potatoes!
I used my baking sheets with a rack on them, so the oven would dry out both sides at once. You can use just a regular baking sheet without the grid, you’ll just have to turn them over after 2 hours.
Just slice your sweet potatoes any way you’d like. You can cut the potatoes lengthwise if you’d like, or even like “fries”. I just sliced them into round disks. I cut mine rather thin, about 1/4 of an inch.
Then just put them on your baking sheets, and bake at 250º for about 4 hours, or until they are the consistency you want. Thicker slices will be more chewy, and thinner slices will be more crispy. I made a mixture of both.
After 4 hours, you will see they have really shriveled up a lot!
Noah loves his sweet potatoes. Who am I kidding, he’ll eat anything. He’s like a canine garbage disposal.
Maxi loves them too! Nom nom nom.
All 5 of our dogs love these treats, and we have a few finicky chihuahuas in the bunch of them. And the best part, is we know what’s in them, no additives, and nothing harmful to our furbabies!
