2.   In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and cocoa powder.

3.   In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, apple sauce, oil, vanilla and sour cream; beat well. 4.   Add dry ingredients, stir to combine.

*I used 72% dark chocolate I smash it up into chunks with my meat mallot. I prefer having different size chunks so its always a surprise how much you’re going to get.

**I used one loaf pan and made a rather large loaf, plus 6 muffins.
