- 2 tablespoons raw pecans, chopped
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 (5.3 oz) container Dannon Light & Fit Original Greek Vanilla Nonfat Yogurt
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 400°F
- Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Once the skillet is hot, add the pecans and heat until browned and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
- Piece the potato several times with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and baked until fork tender, about 50 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully make a slit lengthwise. Pry the slit open with a fork. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
- In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle the potato with salt and black pepper, and then top with the yogurt and pecans.
