My puppy Orion is a spoiled child. She gets pampered with these raw vegan sweet potato jerky dog treats all the time and she loves it! I try to make it as much as I can with my busy schedule and thankfully these are pretty darn easy to make. Very pure and simple ingredients. Only sweet potatoes, a little bit of coconut oil and cinnamon. That’s it! Then, just slice toss and dry or bake! How easy is that? Nutritionally, these are top notch. Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and cinnamon is rich in anti-oxidants and is anti-inflammatory. Coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal so I think my pup is in good hands.
They do make sweet potato jerky commercially but why buy it if you can make it this easily yourself? Best of all, you get much more jerky than just a small bag of it. 

So let’s make these raw vegan sweet potato jerky dog treats! All you need are 3 ingredients. Sweet potatoes, melted coconut oil, and cinnamon.

Wash the sweet potatoes well and slice them into 1/8 inch thick strips. If you have a small sized dog, you can cut them into disks instead. Place all the slices in a bowl and add in the coconut oil and cinnamon. Toss well until all the slices are coated with cinnamon.
