Flaky sea salt (such as fleur de sel)
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Combine flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; stir well.
Place sugars and butter in a large bowl and beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture; beat at low speed until just combined. Fold in apple and Ghirardelli caramel baking chips.
Using a 1 ½-inch cookie scoop drop dough 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Flatten balls slightly with hand; sprinkle tops of cookies with flaky sea salt. Bake at 350° F for 9 to 10 minutes. Cool on pans 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.
