These Christmas cookies for dogs would make a great treat for any pup. As I mentioned, if your dog has food allergies, you can make substitutions to meet his needs. Just be sure to cut the treats to an appropriate size for your dog, so as not to add too many extra calories to the dog’s diet.


  • ½ cup sweet potato (cooked)
  • ¾ cup unbleached flour
  • ¼ cup quick oats
  • 1 Tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 large egg


Preheat your oven to 350°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it off to the side.

You can boil, steam or bake the sweet potato. Just be sure that you are only using 100% sweet potato. Do not add any milk, sugar or unnecessary ingredients.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the cooked sweet potato, flour, quick oats and honey. Stir until well combined. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured working surface until it’s about 1/4-inch thick.

Use any desired cookie cutters to make shapes. Place the cookie cutouts on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you want to, you can lightly brush the tops of cutouts with beaten egg wash to give them a more golden brown look when cooked.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.
