Meanwhile, chop apple, and put chopped apple and dates in a microwave-safe container. Cover with water, sprinkle with salt, and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave for 1 more minute. Remove from heat.
Pour microwaved contents over yogurt and muffins. Let sit for 1-2 minutes, and dig in with a fork or spoon!
