Sweet Potato and Bacon Dog Treats

Simple homemade dog treats featuring sweet potato, bacon crumbles, parsley, and oats that your pup will love.

Sweet Potato and Bacon Dog Treats

We got our beloved dog Grace 9 years ago this week! She has been such a special and wonderful addition to our family and we all think she is the best dog in the world. In honor of her gotcha-date anniversary, I decided to make her these sweet potato and bacon dog treats instead of her recent favorites–sweet potato dog chews & frozen peanut butter & banana treats. She really loves sweet potatoes & bacon so I made some dog treats using them along with some oats and parsley. Grace literally drooled while I was trying to take a photo of her with these treats & she begged (I swear!) for a second one which she happily devoured.

How to Make Sweet Potato and Oatmeal Dog Treats

Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until golden brown and crispy. Remove from the heat and place on paper towels to drain then crumble into small bits; set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Boil the sweet potato over medium-high heat until very tender, about 10-12 minutes. Drain and mash the potato until creamy. Set aside to cool.

Once the potato has cooled, add the flour, oats, well-beaten egg, bacon bits, and parsley. Mix until well combined. Add a touch more flour, if the dough is too wet.

Working on a floured surface, knead the dough 3-4 times until it comes together. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using dog treat cutters, cut out desired shapes, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
