I’ve been making sweet potato chips for my dogs ever since I first bought my food dehydrator. They love them, and are a very healthy snack. They freeze well, too!
Wash sweet potatoes and remove any bad spots. Slice them as thick or thin as you want. Know that the thicker slices will take longer to “cook”. Just as with the chicken jerky, I put nothing on them. (No oil, no seasoning, no nothing).
When they are done, they will actually be crisp. If they’re still rubbery when you try to bend them, continue cooking. Plan on a minimum of 6 hours at 135° – 145°, again, depending on how thick you slice them.
Dogs love sweet potatoes, but it’s never a good idea to feed them raw because they are difficult to digest if not cooked. Sweet potatoes have dietary fiber, Vitamin C, beta carotene and manganese. They are good to aid the digestive system, as well as reducing the risk of cancer. As with any treat, don’t overdo. Sweet potatoes are high in carbs and sugar. I keep a container of them in the fridge near the chicken jerky treats.
