Super Simple Sweet Potato Dog Treats


These sweet potato dog treats are made with just four ingredients. I prefer to make my dogs' treats so that I know exactly what is in them. My dogs go crazy for these simple sweet potato treats.

  • 1 sweet potato

  • 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour

  • 2 large eggs

  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Prick sweet potato several times with a fork. Cook in the microwave on high until tender, about 6 minutes. Let sit until cool enough to handle.

  3. Cut potato in half and scoop flesh into a bowl; discard skin. Mash potato with a fork or potato masher. Transfer about 1 cup mashed potato to a large bowl, saving any remaining for another use.

  4. Mix whole wheat flour, eggs, and applesauce into sweet potato in the bowl until a dough forms.

  5. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface and roll dough to about 1/2-inch thickness. Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter or cut dough into strips with a pizza cutter. Arrange cookies on an ungreased baking sheet.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until crisp, 35 to 45 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
