|Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits|
Don’t forget your furbaby at Christmas! Easy to make dog biscuits your pooch will love!
Dogs really like sweet potatoes and what better than a homemade treat that includes them? You can also used canned if you wish. I just prefer fresh.

As always, any whole-grain flour will do. My dogs have no problems with wheat. If yours do, then just use a non-wheat-based flour. The thing here is to get a rollable dough; the flour doesn’t matter.
I have a set of dog biscuit cutters because I make them all the time–I won’t feed any store-bought treat after that scare–and often make them for gifts. You can use a glass too–dog doesn’t care. It’s just eye appeal for us!! Here’s my set:
- 1 cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
- 1 cup quick oats
- ¾ cup cornmeal
- ¾-1 cup warm water*
- 1½ - 2 cups whole wheat flour
- *Start with the lowest amount, add more if necessary
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet (about 10 x 15 or larger) with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix the sweet potatoes, oats and cornmeal. Add ¾ cup of water and mix well. Let this sit for about 10 minutes.
- Add only enough flour to make a rollable dough. Turn out on lightly floured surface and knead for about 1 minute.
- Roll dough out to about ¼-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes (you can use a glass--the pooch doesn't care LOL).
- Place on prepared pan and bake for 30-35 minutes. Let the pan set in the oven until cool--this helps to dehydrate them for better storage.
- Makes about 2 dozen--my yield when I used a "medium" bone-shaped dog biscuit cutter.
