In a medium bowl, combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, ginger, and salt. Make a well in the center of flour mixture; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together milk, egg, and oil; stir in chopped pear. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened.
For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup of the batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter into an even layer if necessary. Cook over medium heat for 2 to 4 minutes or until pancakes are golden, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Keep pancakes warm in a 300 degrees F oven while cooking the remaining pancakes.
Serve pancakes with warm Apricot-Pear Syrup.
