  • Add the eggs, vanilla extract, maple extract and stevia.
  • Mix well with a fork.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and using a spoon or rubber spatula, thoroughly blend the ingredients together.

  • Microwave for 30 seconds and stir with a fork until completely combined and there are no lumps.
  • Return to the microwave if needed.
  • (There will be tiny pieces of cream cheese that don't melt, it's okay.) Add the sugar-free pancake syrup and stir, then the 3 tablespoons of sweetener.
  • If the glaze is really thick, warm it up again.
  • Drizzle over the maple walnut scones with the fork or a spoon.
