While I didn't have the ingredients to make a warm and comforting chili, I still wanted someting comfort food like. That I could make with one egg. Lucky for me, I had corn meal in my pantry and I whipped up these muffins. I even "healthed them up" by using whole wheat flour and no oil. I think those adjustments made them a bit denser, but they totally balanced out the slathering them in butter :)

1 C stone ground white cornmeal
3/4 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 C apple sauce
1 C milk
Preheat oven to 400. Grease a muffin pan.
Mix together all the dry ingredients, then gently stir in the wet ingredients until combined. Use an ice cream scoop to dish out into the muffin pan.
Bake 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
