Sweet Potato-Mint-Apple Biscuits

Sweet potato, fresh mint, and Granny Smith apples make this cookie hard to resist!mint


  • 3/4 cups mashed plain sweet potatoes
  • 3 TB chicken or beef broth (Make sure onion, onion juice, or onion powder is not an ingredient if buying a commercial brand). You can also just use water
  • 2 1/2 cups Buckwheat flour (you can use garbanzo been flour as well – or if your pooch doesn’t mind grains, you can also use whole wheat flour)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped mint
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and grated


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together sweet potatoes and broth.
  3. Add the flour, mint, and apples, and stir until combined.
  4. Knead the dough a few times until it holds together.
  5. On a generously floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4 thickness.
  6. Use cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
  7. Transfer cookie shapes to baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  8. Bake until dried, and just slightly golden, about 35-40 minutes.
  9. Turn off the oven and let the treats cool in the oven for another 1-2 hours

Store in an airtight container for up to a week.  Treats can also be frozen for a longer period.
