How to make it
Preheat oven to 250° Fahrenheit
Coat a griddle or large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and preheat.
In a medium bowl, combine both flours, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well with a fork and set aside.
In a large bowl or food processor, mash bananas until mushy. Add milk, egg and vanilla and mix or process until blended.
Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and mix or process until just blended (tiny lumps should still appear; do not overmix or pancakes will be tough).
Ladle 3 tablespoons of banana pancakes batter onto hot griddle for each pancake.
Top each with 1/2 tablespoons of blueberries.
When bubbles appear around the edges of the banana blueberry pancakes, after about 2-3 minutes, flip and cook 1 minute. Transfer the banana blueberry pancakes to a warm plate and keep warm in a 250° Fahrenheit oven while you cook remaining pancakes.
Serve the healthy banana blueberry pancakes with maple syrup over top.
