Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
In a large bowl add in the pumpkin puree and apple sauce and whisk to combine. Add in the beaten eggs, syrup and whisk until uniform.
In a small bowl combine the flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder and salt and stir to combine.
Add flour mix to the pumpkin mix and fold. You can add the chocolate chips at this point if you like, however I like to add on top (only).
Bake for 33-35 minutes or until top develops a nice crust. Insert a fork or toothpick to make sure its thoroughly cooked. Remove from oven and let it cool off completely before serving.
