  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 10 ounces Idaho® russet potato, peeled and cut into 2˝ pieces
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place rolled oats in the bowl of a food processor and grind them until they are almost a flour consistency, 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Fill a small saucepan with water and add cut-up potato. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook potato until it is easily pierced with a knife, about 10 minutes. Drain the potato and set it aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add ground oats, egg, cheese, coconut oil, and dried parsley.
  5. Press cooked potato through a ricer, or mash with a potato masher, then add to mixing bowl.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set it aside.
  7. Roll out dough to ⅛” thick and cut out treats with a 2” cookie cutter, or use a small cookie scoop to portion treats, flattening into a disk.
  8. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake for 20-24 minutes.
  9. Cool completely before giving it to your dog.
