Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with paper liners or spray with non stick baking spray.
In large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon.
In another medium sized bowl together the pumpkin, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Then whisk in eggs and yogurt, oil and vanilla extract. Fold liquid ingredients into dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
Scoop batter into muffin tins (I usually use cupcake tin not the jumbo tin) and top each muffin with a sprinkle of the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Then bake for 18-22 minutes. Use a toothpick inserted in the middle to check to see if the muffins are done. Toothpick will come out clean!
