Homemade Vanilla Bean Paste

Want to know every good baker's secret weapon?  It's Vanilla Bean Paste!  This 3-ingredient Homemade Vanilla Bean Paste is way healthier than storebought versions and so much more flavorful.

Ingredients

  • 30 Vanilla Beans *
  • 6 tbs Vanilla Extract (I used homemade!)
  • 1⅔ cups Agave Nectar (or Vegetable Glycerine for a sugar-free version)

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth (you can chop up the vanilla beans if you want to save some time).
  • Place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the mixture inside.
  • Press on the vanilla bean "pulp" to get as much liquid out. Pour the strained vanilla paste liquid into a jar and seal tightly (discard the pulp, or you can reuse it to steep in homemade vanilla extract).  Store the vanilla paste in the fridge.
