Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and allspice in one bowl and mix it well.
In another bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer till it’s all fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix after every addition. Add vanilla and beat that in till the mixture is blended well.
Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients in two batches. Beat after every batch to make sure it’s all mixed well. Once it’s combined add the oats, chocolate chips, pecans, and dried apple. Stir the mixture with a wooden spatula, cover it and let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.

Bake for about 17-20 minutes till the cookies are slightly brown on the edges and golden around the center.
Let the cookies cool. Remove from trays and store in airtight jars.
I have used dried pecan nuts and dehydrated apple chunks in this recipe, but you can substitute your favorite fruit and nut combination for your own twist. These cookies are great as a dessert after a meal or if you want a small pick-me-up through your day.
