Course Dog Treats
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 3 hours
Servings 16


  • 1 large Sweet Potato big enough to yield ¾ cup mashed
  • 3 cups Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup Creamy Natural Peanut Butter


  • Bake the sweet potato at 400 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes or until done (you can easily insert a fork into the middle).
  • Cool the sweet potato to room temperature.
  • Remove and discard sweet potato skin. Mash the flesh.
  • Measure ¾ cup of the mashed sweet potato to use in the treats.
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Add 2 cups of the rolled oats to a blender or food processor and blend until it is the consistency of flour.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats with the oat flour.
  • Add the peanut butter and ¾ cup mashed sweet potato to the oat blend and combine using your hands until a dough forms.
  • If you are using a candy mold, simply press the dough into the mold making sure to fill in all the space.
  • If you are using cookie cutters, turn the dough out onto a smooth surface. Using your hands, squeeze and combine the ingredients until you have a flat, smooth dough. Flatten evenly with your hands or a rolling pin to about ¼ to ½ inch thickness. Place the cutout pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Bake the treat at 250 degrees for 2 hours.
  • Transfer baked treats to a wire rack to cool.


Be sure to use natural, unsweetened peanut butter. Do not use peanut butter with xylitol, a sweetener that is toxic to dogs.
Store the baked dog treats in an airtight container.
