Today’s post is the first of a week of chocolate peppermint – yes, a full week!

Baby’s First Pancakes

This is a recipe I’ve been making for Cooper for over 2 months now, that can be enjoyed in many homes. Thanks to Egg Nutrition Center for sponsoring this post! All scientific information is research-based and all opinions are my own.

A dietitian friend who is aware of my love for pancakes even sent Cooper a pancake onesie knowing how excited I would be when we could share that meal together. Surely, eggs and pancakes were both bound to be some of the first foods I introduced Cooper to, and now two months later, his egg-based “Coopercakes” are regularly on his plate!
