Heat oven to 400°F.
Scrub your sweet potato and pat dry with a towel. Prick sweet potato with a fork 10 or so times.
Place sweet potato on a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes- 1h 15 minutes. Test if your sweet potatoes are cooked through by gently squeezing with an oven mitt. If they are tender, they are ready to serve. If they are firm, return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
Allow sweet potatoes to cool slightly, then slice in half lengthwise.
Scoop flesh out from sweet potatoes, leaving 1/4 inch around the edge of the sweet potato skin. Transfer filling to a bowl.
Add the maple syrup, yogurt, cinnamon and salt to the bowl and mash together. Gently scoop the filling back into the sweet potato skins.
Microwave the butter and mix in the flour, brown sugar and pecans. Sprinkle evenly over the sweet potatoes.
Return to the oven for 5-10 minutes, keeping a careful eye that the pecans don't burn. Streusel should be melted and buttery.
