Sweet Potato Dog Chews

Pin It

I made these for the furs for Christmas and again over this past weekend.
They loved them!
The first time, I used a mandoline slicer on the thickest setting and left them to dehydrate at about 125 degrees overnight. They came out a little too thin and too hard. The next time around, I sliced them by hand and dehydrated on 165 degrees for just a couple of hours. They came out perfectly!

I used Vegan Flower's Recipe. I prepared them just as she did, but added a drizzle flaxseed oil after steaming. Once they were layed out on the dehydrator, I sprinkled them with nutritional yeast. The oil and yeast gave added flavor and a nutritional boost. Flaxseed oil is great for dogs bones, hair and coat. Nutritional yeast provides B vitamins and helps keep fleas away.

I bet the furs wished I would make these more often :)
