Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line an 8-inch loaf pan with wide strips of parchment paper running its length and width. In a large bowl, whisk together banana, soymilk and honey. Add flour, 2 tablespoons flaxseed, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Whisk again just until combined. Transfer to pan, sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon flaxseed and bake until cooked through and golden brown, about 55 minutes. Carefully loosen corners with a table knife, if needed. Remove bread to a rack to cool.
