  • 4 whole vanilla beans
  1. Preheat your oven to 170 C (350 F).
  2. Slice your vanilla beans lengthwise (no need to scrape the seeds, you will use whole beans) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast for 4-5 minutes in a fan oven (regular oven might need a minute longer). Vanilla beans will still be a little soft (but will harden after cooling).
  3. Let cool completely. Cut each vanilla strip into small chunks. Put them in a coffee grinder (spice grinder) to pulverize. Store the powder in an airtight small glass jar.

  4. HOW TO USE HOMEMADE VANILLA POWDER: In any recipe that calls for liquid vanilla extract or vanilla paste, use 1/2 tsp vanilla powder for each teaspoon of vanilla extract or paste.
