Dog Lovin' - Sweet Potato Banana Oatmeal Dog Treats #2 {Gluten-Free]

sweet potato banana oatmeal dog treat recipe; gluten-free

Since my Sweet Potato Banana Oatmeal Dog Treats were a hit with Indigo & Lily, I decided to create another version of the recipe.  I removed the ginger and added applesauce and they turned out great!  Gluten-free and packed with lots of vitamins and fiber... Indigo & Lily loved them!

These treats are soft and chewy and it's easy to pinch off a piece if you want to use them for training. Keep in mind they have a lot of fiber in them, so don't give too many at once!

  • Sweet potatoes are a great source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber for your pup (ref dogtime).
  • Bananas have lots of electrolytes, amino acids, vitamins, potassium and fiber for your pup(ref: Paw Nation).

Be sure to also check out my other dog treat recipes...they are all gluten-free.  Indigo & Lily love them and I hope your pups do too!

Sweet Potato Banana Oatmeal Dog Treats {Gluten-Free}

Recipe by Laura Ashman Jolna

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 12 min
Total time: 17 min
Yield: 22-24 treats

  • 1-1/4 cup oat flour, gluten-free
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sweet potato puree (approx 1 med sweet potato)
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened, organic)
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp molasses
To roast sweet potatoes:  
  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Peel and chop sweet potatoes into 1/2" cubes.  Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with olive oil spray.
  • Place sweet potato cubes in a single layer on baking sheet and spray with olive oil spray.
  • Roast for 25 minutes until golden & soft.
For treats:
  • Preheat oven to 350º.
  • Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium bowl with a whisk.
  • Puree sweet potatoes, banana, applesauce & molasses in Cuisinart until well blended.  
  • Add puree to dry mixture and stir well with a spatula until mixed.  
  • Refrigerate dough for at least 15 minutes (don't skip this step).
  • Scoop on baking sheet coated with cooking spray using small cookie scoop.  Flatten with a wet fork.  Another option is to roll out and use cookie cutters.  
  • Bake 12 minutes.  Cool on wire rack.  Store in the refrigerator as there aren't any preservatives used.  Should last up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
I flip back and forth between grinding my own oat flour from gluten free oatmeal or using Bob's Red Mill Oat Flour.
