This is a less expensive way to enjoy vanilla then the expensive vanilla extracts and it only take a few minutes to make.
2 cups Buckwheat Groats
9 vanilla beans
Place the dry buckwheat groats in your high-speed blender.
Remove the hard end piece off the vanilla beans and cut the beans into 1" pieces.
Place the cut vanilla beans on top of the buckwheat groats in the blender container.
Run on high speed for 15-20 seconds or until finely powdered.
Refrigerate or freeze in airtight container or ziplock bag.
In the following video I call for 6 vanilla beans with 2 cups of buckwheat groats, however I have recently been making it with 9 vanilla beans instead and I like it better. Use the amount that you prefer.
If you would like us to make it for you, we are now providing it with our Plant-Powered Mixes (under Staple Stash).
