Beat together the eggs, oil and carrots. In another bowl sift all dry ingredients together. Combine the dry and the moist ingredients until smooth. Add walnuts to the batter. Transfer to paper lined muffin cups. Bake 25 minutes in a preheated oven (350 degrees), or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
