Nakia’s Cinnamon-Sweet Potato Crunchers

I got the basic recipe for these treats from stubbydog.org. I have been doing some reading on the benefits of cinnamon and decided to modify the stubby dog recipe with my own little kick. (I will write more on cinnamon at a later date.) I first made a batch of the stubby dog Easy Sweet Potato Crunchers. They are so easy it’s stupid. Just cut up sweet potatoes and stick them in the oven at 250 degrees for about 2 hours.

Sweet potatoes are rich in nutrients, such as:nakia sweet potato treat

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin C
  • Manganese
  • Calcium
  • Fiber
  • Vitamin B6
  • Potassium
  • Phosphorus
  • Iron

Most dogs love sweet potatoes because of their sweet taste and they are easy to digest. Nakia has always LOVED sweet potatoes so I named my version after her. These are delicious and nutritious for people too! Recipe can easily be doubled, even tripled.
