Homemade Dog Treats: Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe

I’ve umm’d and ahhh’d over the final choice of homemade dog treat recipe for this 8 part series.  What recipe would be good enough to round up the whole series?  Well.. in the end, I plumped for a sweet potato dog biscuit recipe!  A little bit more preparation needed and longer cooking time but well, our furiends are worth it, aren’t they!?!?!?

While it’s the last in this 8 part series, I’m sure we’ll be back with more recipes in the future.  We do have three food obsessed spaniels after all ;0)  Do feel free tag us with your own homemade dog treats by using #milliespetservices in the meantime ;0)

Homemade Dog Treats: Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe


Sweet Potato Dog Treats

Preparation Time: 20 minutes; Cooking Time: 25-30 mins

Difficulty:   Moderate



  • 300g sweet potato
  • 300g wholewheat flour
  • 50g rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 large egg


You’ll also need some cookie cutters – I have these little bone cutters, which are great value and can be bought HERE.  But for today’s treats I raided our baking stash to find some different shapes.


Homemade Dog Treats: Sweet Potato Dog Treat Recipe





#1 Preheat your oven to 170 degrees Celcius

Pop your oven to 170 degrees Celcius so that it’s ready to bake when you are.


#2  Line your baking trays

As the recipe made around 70 biscuits (I went for small shapes), line two or three large baking trays with parchment paper to stop them sticking during cooking.

#3  Peel your Sweet Potatoes and Boil!

Once you’ve peeled your sweet potatoes, chop them into small chunks and place in a pan of boiling water.  They will take around 10-12 minutes but need to be soft enough to mash into a dough.

Drain all the water, mash and leave to cool.

#4  Pop all the ingredients, bar the egg, into a bowl and mix!

Yep, we love these simple recipes!!! Grab all of the ingredients, with the exception of the egg, and gently mix them together in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon.

They should form a dough like consistency but it will feel wetter than some of our previous recipes.

If you feel the mixture is too wet, add some more flour but do think about adjusting your cooking time.

#5 Get ready to roll

Pop some  flour (you’ll need a lot to stop it sticking) onto both your surface and a rolling pin and get ready to roll ;0)

You’ll want to roll out the dough to around 1/4 inch thickness and then use your cookie cutter shapes to make the biscuits.


#6  Ready, Steady…. Bake!

Pop your biscuits onto the trays leaving a little room around them to bake fully.  Brush the top with your beaten egg.

Then it’s time to grab a cuppa and let them do their thing in the oven.  These sweet potato dog treats should take between 25-30 minutes and once golden are fully cooked.

When making these again and using the smaller star-shaped cookie cutters, I’d def rotate halfway through cooking and consider lowering the temperature and cooking for a little longer time. Keep an eye on them around 10 minutes and feel free to adjust based on the size and thickness that you’ve made your treats.



#7  Leave to cool

You’ll need to let this little lot cool down before you allow them some treats. But … I’m guessing they’ll be ready and waiting for them ;0)

#8  Treat Time!

Your furiend won’t need to be asked twice … it’s woof time!




You can store in the fridge for around 2/3 days but remember you could also freeze these for up to 2 months too. Just pop them in an airtight container and you can batch cook lots at one time for those
