This review is without glaze...because I grabbed a corner bite before mixing any and it's plenty sweet without! Glad I tried it before proceeding! I didn't have the maple flavoring but my pure local maple syrup is outstanding and the recipe turned out great with that alone! I think I'll back off on the brown sugar and try it with the glaze next time though. I tried this because of soon-to-expire walnuts...and I made it with my gluten-free flour blend I like to use with 'nutty' recipes - it includes a little almond flour - and this came out beautifully! I'll struggle in the morning to not eat it for breakfast! NICE change of pace! I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed WAY before now!
