Make Pancake Mix:

Place the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom into a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

Place the Florida Orange Juice, eggs and buttermilk in a medium mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the liquid to the dry mixture and stir together with a spatula just until combined. There should still be lumps. Do not overmix. Fold in the blueberries.

Make Syrup:

Pour Florida Orange Juice and maple syrup into a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Pour into a dispenser.  

Cook Pancakes:

Spray an electric griddle or skillet with non-stick spray and set over medium-high heat.

Once the pan is hot, scoop 1/4 cup of batter into the pan and cook until bubbles form around the edges and the pancake is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to an ovenproof plate and keep warm in the oven. Repeat until all the batter is cooked.

Serve with Florida OJ maple syrup.
