Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Dog Treats Recipe

Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Dog Treats Recipe

Your dog is going to love this homemade version of Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Dog Treats! They’re easy to make and are full of natural ingredients.

As a food blogger, I am constantly moving around the kitchen and dining room with food that I am photographing. Daisy is always waiting for a piece! So, boy was she happy when she found out these Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Dog Treats I was baking were all for her!

My daughter had found a super cute dog biscuit cookie cutter a while ago at the craft store, so we have been playing around with recipes for awhile now.

Around the holidays, I love to make homemade dog biscuits for friends with dogs or Daisy’s friends. Your furry friend will just love the treat trays we make with these dog cookies. You can make them in holiday shapes like Gingerbread Men or Christmas Trees. Or for Valentine’s Day, you can make heart shaped homemade treats.

There really is no extra cost to make more than enough treats for your fur babies, as this is a recipe that uses ingredients most people will have in their pantry. This natural dog treat is a great way to use up leftover sweet potatoes, are a good source of fiber, and a fun way to give your dog a healthy treat!

This is our sweet Texas Heeler, Daisy. A Texas Heeler is part Australian Cattle Dog and Australian Shepherd. She’s sweet and funny, but if you know heelers, you know they need a lot of stimulation and enrichment if they aren’t working.

How to Make My Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Dog Treats Recipe:

Be sure scroll down because I have the full printable recipe with ingredients and instructions for you.

You will need:

all purpose flour
eggs
baked sweet potatoes
2 eggs
1/4 cup baked sweet potato 
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt
a cookie sheet 
and an airtight container

Sweet Potato Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe

Use ingredients that are room temperature.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat and preheat the oven 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together flour, eggs, sweet potato, peanut butter and salt.

Add a little water as needed to get the dough to knead until a dough forms. But not too wet, as you want your dough to be dry and stiff.

We recently started changing our homemade dog treats to swap out water for beef or chicken bone broth for added flavor and nutrients.

Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch-thick using a rolling pin on a floured surface and cut them out with your cookie cutter.

Bake for about 40 minutes until they are hard! These are a crunchy biscuit, not a chewy dog treat.

Then let your very own treats cool on a wire rack on a stable surface

If you check out the reviews on these homemade dog treat recipe, you’ll notice it has 5 stars. Well how do you know your pups will love these treats? When they come running over when they hear the treat container being opened!

How Long Will These Dog Treats Last?

After the treats have cooled off, keep them in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks. If you’d like to freeze them, homemade dog treats last about 6 months in a freezer safe container.

Don’t forget to ask your vet if your dog has allergies if these homemade dog treats are good for them to enjoy! Xylitol is bad for dogs, so make sure your peanut butter does not have it! I use the peanut butter from Aldi.

Alternatives for your your dog’s favorite treat:

  • You can add a little cinnamon to your sweet potato treats.
  • Instead of all purpose flour, you can use oat flour or whole wheat flour.
  • Baby food is an excellent alternative if you do not have some of these simple ingredients.
  • Instead of water you can use broth, olive oil or coconut oil.
  • or you could make a gluten-free dog treat recipe using gluten free flour or a grain-free dog treat recipe depending on your pet’s diet.

I am a volunteer trainer for a company that trains dogs to be medical alert dogs. When I saw this recipe I sent it to the head trainer and asked her if it was okay and she not only told me yes but I asked me to make two dozen for class this week. I hope they're good.

I've been making these for years but with sunbutter because it's easier to digest and coconut flour. I also add either marrijuana infused coconut oil or cbd. They dogs LOVE them!

Hi, just made them for our Black Cur/Border Collie mix. We have been giving him canned pumpkin daily for his anal gland issues (they have to be expressed often) and since we only give him 1/8th cup daily, it takes us a while to use a full can, so I'm always looking for pumpkin recipes. I didn't roll these out and use a cutter, I just rolled into a log, sliced in 1/2" slices, and cut each slice into 6 pieces for smaller treats. I only cooked them for 30 minutes as they were smaller. He seems to like them!

@Lois Demers, I used half pumpkin and half sweet potato. It worked well. I also added diced apples that were gonna have to be tossed. This recipe is a great base recipe. Im sure you could tweak it according to your dogs needs.

Cinnamon is 1 of the worst things that you can give to a dog

Thanks for your comment Deborha. Actually, it's more so if a dog eats a cinnamon stick or eats large quantities, ie: gets into the spice container. But, as stated in this the recipe for these peanut butter sweet potato dog treats, you can speak to your vet about any ingredients you have a question about.
