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.
