Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber, making them an excellent treat to aid in your dog’s digestive health. The sugary sweetness of a sweet potato is hard to resist and—thankfully—these root vegetables are perfectly safe for your pup. They’re laden with essential nutrients your dog needs for a healthy diet and, when cooked, make a wonderful treat. As long as you scrub for mold the skins are safe to eat, but this recipe works well without them. Just make sure you remove any traces of the vine, as that can be toxic to pets. Cinnamon Sweet Potato Jerky   Print Recipe Ingredients 2 large sweet potatoes peeled1/4 cup ground cinnamon1/8 cup coconut oil Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.Wash sweet potatoes thoroughly to remove dirt. Poke small holes through the skin of the potatoes before cooking. Bake sweet potatoes for 45 minutes on foil-lined baking sheet. Turn off heat and allow to cool in the oven for 2 hours. (Optionally, you could allow them to cool off in the refrigerator if you'd rather cut them cold) Peel sweet potatoes to remove skin, then cut into 1/4 inch thick strips. Lightly baste the tops and bottoms of each strip with a coating of coconut oil. Sprinkle the tops of each strip with ground cinnamon. Return strips to oven and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, checking regularly to avoid burning the sweet potatoes. Jerky is done when ends are slightly black and center is firm, but still chewy. Recipe Notes Ovens vary so it might take a couple of tries before finding the right combination of time and temperature. When storing, keep strips in a airtight container. These sweet potato jerky treats usually last for a couple of...

You can use it as an alternative to white flour, which is what we did with our Gluten Free Force Buckwheat Dog Treat recipe. We’ve also added chickpea flour and The Honest Kitchen’s force dry formula for an added punch of protein and tastiness.
