Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits

Pin It

I always wanted to make homemade dog treats for Reyna, but for one reason or another, I never got around to doing so.



While we were showering her with love for her one-year adopt-iversary (which, honestly, was no different than any other day since she's absolutely spoiled!), I finally made her some dog treats. I had a leftover sweet potato and figured she'd like the flavor since she loves pumpkin.



I found a very basic biscuit recipe; these were SO easy to make! And with only three ingredients, I feel good giving these Reyna. She loves them! Next time I might add in a few teaspoons of peanut butter to add even more flavor.

Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits
Slightly Adapted From: My Baking Addiction

Ingredients

1 large sweet potato (1 1/2 cups), roasted and mashed
1 egg
1 3/4 white whole wheat flour

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mashed sweet potato and egg. Stir in the flour. Dough will be thick (add a tablespoon of water to get things moving, if needed). Roll dough into balls - about a tablespoon in size. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten to about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Bake for 30 minutes; allow to cool on baking sheet. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Yield:  30 biscuits

  1. I should give these a whirl - my son just adopted a dog and we took it to the local "dog" bakery to pick up some treats and they were crazy expensive!
