Method

For the mascarpone, stir together cheese, zest, juice, honey and cinnamon in a small bowl until smooth; set aside.

Whisk together both flours, flax meal, cinnamon, baking soda and salt; set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar in a large bowl using an electric mixer.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Beat in bananas, soymilk, yogurt and vanilla just until combined, then fold in flour mixture just until incorporated.

Heat a bit of oil on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat.

Working in batches, pour about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the hot surface for each pancake, making sure to space them a few inches apart.

Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles appear across the pancakes.

Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, or until cooked through and golden brown.

Transfer pancakes to plates and serve warm, topped with the orange-honey mascarpone, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of orange zest, if you like.
