Script to find Only empty OU and subOU's nested in a particular OU structure

Looking for the most accurate way to find all empty OU and nested Ones within my AD Structure. I dont want the entire forest/domain. Just inside a particular delegated OU.  I have tried many different ways, but when I do a cross-check of the data it is not accurate.  

Cannot use any Third Party tools.

To count number of objects in an OU (and sub OU's): use the adfind command
i.e
adfind -b ou=<Require OU to search>,dc=<Yourdomain>,dc=com -f "(objectCategory=*)" -c

This will return all empty OU's within a certain OU (Searchbase)

Get-ADOrganizationalUnit -Filter * -SearchBase "OU=My OU,DC=DOMAIN,DC=com" | Where-Object {-not ( Get-ADObject -Filter * -SearchBase $_.Distinguishedname -SearchScope OneLevel -ResultSetSize 1 )} | Select Name,DistinguishedName
