Sweet Potato Jerky Treats

Sweet Potato Jerky Treats

Looking for a nice treat for your canine friends that isn’t made out of another animal’s skin or bone? Look no further than these Sweet Potato Jerkies. For the price of one sweet potato, you will create a lot of chew-time fun for your favorite pooches. The longer you bake them, the drier and crunchier they become. In testing them out with our dog, he preferred the ones that were a little softer. Maybe your dog will prefer the crunchier kind – if so, cut them more narrow and bake them longer. Regardless of preference, these babies have a great nutritional profile without requiring violence against other animals.

Sweet Potato Jerky Treats

1 large sweet potato, washed and dried

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees. Parchment-line or position a reusable non-stick baking mat on a cookie sheet.

Cut your sweet potato in half and then cut them into fry shapes. Lay them flat on the cookie sheet, not overlapping, and bake for 1 hours. Turn them, and bake for another 1 hours, or until desired level of crispness, knowing that they will dry out more as they cool. 

Cool completely.

Store in a container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
