There's a category of foods that will always be worth making yourself.

Pasta sauce. Soups. Cookies.

Store-bought is fine... But homemade? Better.

Then there are the foods most of us never consider making at home — either because of the hassle or because what you can pick up at the grocery store is totally acceptable.

A few days ago, I would have placed crackers in that second category...

Then I tried making these oat crackers by my friend Julia Murray, RHN, and let me tell you, it's like I've never actually had crackers before.

These homemade crackers are rich in flavor, loaded with unexpected ingredients like white beans, carrots, nut butter, and seeds, and packed with protein (thanks in part to Complement Protein).

Plus, they're surprisingly simple to make.

After dipping these into my favorite homemade hummus, I'll never look at store-bought crackers the same.

Check out the recipe, here (you won't regret it, I promise!):
