Sweet Potato Doggy Muffins

Human food is meant for humans, dog food for dogs. Too much human food can make a dog sick, so if you want to organize a birthday party or some home-made treats for your precious pooch, these savoury muffins are just perfect.

The doggies will love them. The Schnauzers did.

Just remember to remove the paper cases or some dogs will eat them too.

Here is the recipe:

Sweet Potato Doggie Muffin Recipe


  • Coconut oil – to grease muffin tin or paper cases
  • 1 cup Sweet Potato or Kumara ( cooked, mashed and no skin)
  • 1 cup peeled and finely grated carrot, lightly packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 Celsius) and grease a muffin tin with oil or line with paper cases. Set aside
  2. Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Use a wooden spoon to thoroughly combine.
  3. Spoon mix in a muffin tin, filling all the way up. The mix will not rise.
  4. Bake for around 35 minutes
  5. Let muffins cool for about 5 minutes and then carefully transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  6. Store in the fridge and an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Variation: pumpkin could work well in this recipe instead of Sweet potato. I decorated mine with a dried sardine treat.

      1. I think Mike and his wife still have toy poodles, but I’m not 100% sure. Dave has some kind of hound mix and an English Bulldog. He rescues hard to place and older dogs.

    1. I don’t know if carry muffins either, Tanja. I am sure to can find something on the internet. Perhaps a fish type patty would suit? How old is your cat?
