DIY Eat – Sweet Potato Chews
Prepare these single ingredient fiber- and vitamin-rich treats for your dog in 5 minutes flat!
All you need is five minutes prep time and a single raw yam or sweet potato. Pure, easy, and unadulterated, dog treats don’t get any healthier, easier or less expensive than this.
• Preheat oven to 250° F.
• Scrub the sweet potato or yam. No need to peel.
• Cut it into thin slices (the thinner the slice the shorter the cooking time) and place on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
• Bake in oven at 250° F for about 3 hours for slightly chewy treats or bake slightly longer to get them crunchy. Note: timing will vary according to the thickness of your slices; just keep an eye on them. Or, better yet, if you have a dehydrator, pop them in there instead of the oven.
Sweet potatoes are a source of dietary fiber and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, beta carotene, and manganese. Most dogs love the chewy sweetness of a delish dehydrated sweet potato treat. And you can rest easy knowing there’s no additives, preservatives or anything extraneous added.
