Mimi's Pumpkin Spice Muffins

So my favorite muffins in world are Mimi's Cafe's! My favorite of their muffins is their Pumpkin Spice Muffins, but we live about 1 hour away from the closest Mimi's. I hate to ask for recipes from resturant chains, but does anyone have a recipe for their Pumpkin Spice Muffins?
