Preheat oven to 350°. Line eighteen muffin-pan cups with paper liners or grease.

In a large mixer bowl at low speed, beat oil, sugar and brown sugar until blended. Add eggs and beat until smooth and fluffy. Add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Beat at low speed until blended. Increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes or until thick and smooth. Stir in carrots, nuts and raisins just until combined. Fill muffin cups about two-thirds full.
