  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and ½ inch up the sides of two 8x2-inch loaf pans or line bottoms with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together pumpkin, sugar, egg, honey, oil, orange peel, and orange juice. Using a wooden spoon, stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture just until combined. Stir in nuts and dates or raisins. Divide mixture between the prepared pans.
  3. Bake about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire racks.
