Method: 

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake papers; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 3/4 cup crumbs, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add sweet potatoes and toss until well coated; set aside.

In a second large bowl, vigorously whisk together butter and yogurt for 30 seconds. Add eggs one at a time, whisking well after each addition. Add flour and sweet potato mixture and fold together until just combined. Spoon batter evenly into muffin tins, sprinkle tops with pecans and remaining 1/4 cup crumbs and bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 25 minutes.
