So as we had our first full day with the fur babies, I stayed home and decided to catch up with Pinterest and see what awesome treats that are healthy I could make! So here’s our first official home made doggie treats! Yay for healthy! Most simplest recipe ever and you probably already eat this and have it available! No joking!
2-3 sweet potatoes
1 tbsp of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
Slice the sweet potatoes length wise thin, but not paper thin. About a quarter inch thick or less. You want them to crisp up easily. Then depending on how wide your slices are you can cut those in half length wise as well.
Now you want to take that tbsp of EVOO and layer through bottom of a baking sheet with it and make sure it’s covered but not slathered in oil. Otherwise it’ll take longer for the potatoes. So now you lay it all down, make sure no pieces are overlapping each other and bake on 200° for 4 hours! (I did it in three and they still turned out great) Each hour you check you flip all the pieces so they get a nice even coat of heat on each side. Then you let them cool and store away! They go fast so make sure you do more than 2 potatoes. The idea is to dehydrate them, kinda like jerky, but since I don’t have a dehydrator I do it the old fashioned way!
Here’s the verdict:
Everyone loves them! They are a huge hit! We are already learning with positive reinforcement how to hang with this family! These treats are dog and human approved!!
Happy Cooking Y’all!
