This recipe makes 14 regular size pancakes.  In a large bowl, combine the flours, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Combine the egg, milk, bananas and vanilla; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a hot griddle coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with blueberries.  Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown.  Serve with yogurt and sliced bananas if desired (syrup optional).
