Homemade Sweet Potato Chips for dogs and dog lovers!

Lots of folks love, love, love our Homemade Sweet Potato Chew recipe for dogs!

So we thought we would take it just a little further and recommend another one of our favorite treats - Homemade Sweet Potato Chips for dogs!

Our chips don't last as long as our chews and they are smaller, but the nice part is they bake a lot faster than our chews, which makes them a great treat to make and enjoy more often.

So let's get started!

  • Wash and peel two sweet potatoes - organic is best!
  • Use a kitchen slicer (if you have one) or cut the potatoes as thin as you can (at least 1/9" thin).
  • Arrange the slices on a baking sheet and brush them with olive oil.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes, until the edges begin to curt. (You may want to turn at 10 minutes and re-brush).
  • That's it...cool and let your dog's enjoy!


For the humans we have a few variations that you may want to enjoy. You can have one cooking sheet baking for your dog and one for you too!

For humans versions of our Homemade Sweet Potato chips you can brush the following mixtures on the chips prior to baking:

  • Salty - brush a mixture of 2 tb. olive oil, 1 tb. garlic powder, sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Hot and Sweet - brush a mixture of 1/4 tsp. cayanne pepper, 2 tb. maple syrup, 2 tb. olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  • Sweet - brush a mixture of 2 tb olive oil, 1/3 tb. cinnamon, 1 tb. maple syrup and then sprinkle with a little coarse salt.
  • Herbal - brush a mixture of 2 tb olive oil, crushed garlic clove, 1/4 chopped rosemary and then sprinkle with a little coarse salt.

Enjoy!!! And let us know if you vary the recipe any and share your great ideas with our other readers! Google

I've done this! My little 9 week old Border Collie/Labrador mix, Barbie, loves them!! Any tips for making chicken jerky without a dehydrator?

Made these for my dogs and they all really loved them,even the picky shih tzu. I was a bit surprised at how much they liked them. The human ones didn't come out so good. Just put rosemary and olive oil, so the dogs got them, too. Will make these again!
