    1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. Place raisins in a bowl and pour in boiling water to cover by 1 inch. Allow to sit until raisins are plump and rehydrated, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain raisins, and reserve 1/3 cup of the soaking water in a separate bowl.
    3. Combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cloves, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Combine pumpkin puree, sugar, eggs, reserved soaking water, and oil in another bowl; mix with a spoon or whisk until well combined. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture until just moistened. Fold in walnuts and raisins. Pour batter into a 9×5-inch loaf pan.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 15 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.


    • Cook’s Notes:
    • You can use 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice instead of the 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, if you’d like. One half cup of egg substitute can be substituted for the eggs.
    • To make muffins, place paper liners in 18 muffin cups. Spray liners lightly with cooking spray and fill each with 1/4 cup batter. Reduce baking time to 15 to 20 minutes.
