Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies (Grain-Free, Paleo)



  1. Place the almond flour, coconut flour, maple sugar, gelatin, arrowroot and sea salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process 2-3 times to combine. Add the ghee and egg and process until the dough forms a ball. Remove half of the dough from the bowl, form it into a flat 6-inch disk, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Add the red food coloring and the peppermint oil to the remaining dough and process until the dough is red. Form the red dough into a flat 6-inch disk, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Place 2 pieces of parchment paper on the counter. Place each dough round on a piece of parchment. Sprinkle with arrowroot and roll each dough round into a 12 x 10-inch rectangle (if the measurement isn’t exact, that’s ok). With the red dough still attached to the parchment, carefully take the red dough and place it on top of the “white” dough with the parchment now facing up. Slowly peel the parchment off of the red dough.
  4. Using the parchment paper as an aid, roll the dough into a tight cylinder. After the cylinder is formed, roll it back and forth on the counter to slightly elongate it and compact it. Wrap the log in plastic wrap, twisting the edges so all of the dough is covered. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350ºF and adjust the rack to the middle position. Remove the dough log from the refrigerator and cut it into 1/4” thick slices using a paring knife. Place the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes. Cool and serve.
