Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits
These biscuits come to you Lola and Chloe approved. They love them. Here are my taste testers.
They would test everything that comes into this house if I would let them. They do like these biscuits and I like that they didn’t have a lot of ingredients so they came together quickly. I had some of the ones I made last month still left and in a side by side test they both after a few sniffs they both chose this dog biscuit. Now that I am making their treats I feel much better about giving them treats. I always wondered what was in the ones I gave them and for some reason I don’t think I want to know. These girls love fruits and veggies, cauliflower, broccoli you name it. They will eat about any of them except Chloe is not very fond of ripe bananas. I even discovered they love oranges!
I used a whole sweet potato in these treats today, with old fashioned oats, an egg and whole wheat flour. I don’t use and sugar, salt or anything like that in their treats. Next time I am going to add some shredded carrots to these. This recipe can be adjusted pretty easy just by adding a little water or a little flour. If you have cooked veggies you want to use up as long as they don’t have salt or a lot of salt in them I would use it up. I made these in the food processor and it all came together in minutes. Because this dough didn’t have the fat content as last months did it was a little harder to roll out and I rolled it thinner only because my girls aren’t that big and don’t need big biscuits.
Believe it or not these two are sisters born a year apart. They are complete opposites in every way.

Yield: 3 dozen
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Baked sweet potatoes, whole wheat flour and an egg, not much to them but my girls love these Sweet Potato Dog Biscuits.
1 large sweet potato
1 cup oatmeal – not quick
1 1/2 – 2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
Bake sweet potato. Scoop out the sweet potato into the food processor bowl. Add the oats and pulse several times to break up the oats. Add 1 1/2 cups of the flour, egg and oil. Mix until combined. If it feels tacky or too soft add remaining flour.
Roll out dough on a floured counter. Cut out with a cookie cutter or just into squares. Place on a greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes for small dog bones or 20 – 22 minutes for large ones. You want the bones to be dry to the touch. Allow to cool on a wire rack overnight. Place in a airtight container.
