Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

This is so frustrating! Last Sunday morning I made these delicious whole wheat blueberry pancakes after a quick internet search. I found a recipe that encompassed wheat flour, white flour and oat bran. Perfect! I wanted a hearty pancake that would pack a healthy punch beneath the maple syrup and butter.
However, I didn't bookmark the page and now I can't find it on a Google search! Either it disappeared or I searched for it under some terms I can't remember. Anyway, I found a recipe that was similar and have posted it below. So I guess these pancakes were really a one time deal in my house since I can't find the recipe again! Oh well. Thankfully there are thousands of whole wheat blueberry pancake recipes to try on the interwebs so I'm sure I'll get by. Enjoy!

Makes about 6 pancakes

3/4 cup white whole-grain (wheat) flour
1/4 cup oat flour (or Oat Bran)
1 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn baking soda
1/4 tspn salt
1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen and thawed)
1 cup buttermilk (or milk)
1 large egg - lightly beaten
2 tbsp butter - melted

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter to this.

Stir all the remaining ingredients until they are just combined. Don’t worry if the batter is a bit lumpy, you don't want to over mix. Finally fold in the blueberries.

Heat your skillet, pan, or griddle to medium-hot and brush it with a bit of butter. (If a drop of water dropped onto the pan starts to sizzle, the pan is hot enough). Now pour about 1/3 of a cup of batter into the skillet. Wait until the pancake bottom is deep golden in color (about 30 seconds), then flip with a spatula and cook the other side until golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter.
