i came across sweet potato dog chews in a natural pet store + in a moment of what can only be described as lunacy, plunked down $13 on a bag of them. of course, they became my dog’s favorite treat (she has expensive taste) + rather than go bankrupt over her snacking habits, decided to recreate them at home.
sweet potato dog chews
note: a 1 lb sweet potato makes approximately 15 chews
preheat oven to 230 degrees
peel the entire sweet potato. slice the sweet potato into ¼’’ thick lengthwise slices using a knife or mandoline.
place slices in a single layer on a baking sheet.
bake at 230 degrees for 3 – 4 hours, flipping once about halfway through. at 3 hours, they’ll be chewy, like dried apple slices, which is how skylar prefers them. closer to 4 hours, they’ll be crispy, like potato chips.
cool fully before giving to your pup. no dog needs a burned tongue!print this recipe
