Good Dog {Gluten-free Sweet Potato Dog Treats}

A dog needs to eat too!

Kensington is never far from my feet when I’m cooking.  We try to never feed her ‘table’ food, but sometimes Granny Di (a.k.a. my mom) can’t stand it and gives her real, crispy bacon.  Oops.  Her other favorites are fresh apples, carrots, and sweet potatoes.  Just one or two small cubes is all she gets.

I had a sweet potato that was going bad, so I decided to use it as a base for doggie treats.  Kenz is a fan!

{Gluten-free Sweet Potato Dog Treats}

1 sweet potato, baked and peeled

1 carrot, baked

1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce

1 c plus 1/4 c gluten-free rolled oats

1/2 t baking soda

1/4 c water

1 egg white

corn meal


Add the baked sweet potato, carrot, apple sauce, 1 cup of oats, baking soda, and water to a food processor.  Blend until well combined.  Stir in the last 1/4 cup oats by hand.

Dust a parchment paper lined cookie sheet with corn meal.  Roll out the dough until you reach the thinness of a dog treat.  Sprinkle the top with more corn meal and brush with egg whites.  Score with a knife in small squares (or use a cookie cutter if you care that much).

Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.  Half way through the baking, flip them over with a spatula.

Kenzie sitting like a good pup waiting to be told “eat it”!  How cute is her cornmeal snout!?

  1. Awwww such a great idea! I was making a sweet potato dish that went bad over the weekend. I could have totally used it for doggie treats.
