Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a loaf pan.
Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
Combine pumpkin, applesauce and oil in a separate bowl. Stir in dark chocolate chips. Fold pumpkin mixture into the flour mixture. Pour batter in prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top of the batter in the loaf pan.
Bake until toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, approximately 1 hour.
I cooked in my gas oven. In an emergency, consider making in a Dutch oven on your outdoor grill.
