1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup canned pure pumpkin

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9" round cake pan with foil, and generously spray with nonstick spray.
Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a food processor. Puree until completely smooth and uniform.
Fold in 1 tbsp. chocolate chips.
Spread mixture into the baking pan, and smooth out the top.
Evenly top with remaining 2 tbsp. chocolate chips, and lightly press into the batter.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean, 35 - 40 minutes.
Let cool completely, about 1 hour.
Refrigerate leftovers. (This cake tastes great chilled.)

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.
