Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Grind oats in a high speed blender until you get a fine consistency like flour.
Mix all dry ingredients together, including the chocolate chips.
For the wet ingredients, put pecans and water in a food processor, and process for 15 seconds. You do not need a paste, just ground up pecans. Add the rest of the wet ingredients and process for at least 10 seconds, or until well incorporated.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Oats absorb liquid rather quickly, so quickly spoon out about 2 Tbsp. worth of cookie dough onto your cookie sheet, or use a cookie scoop.
Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should be slightly soft, but firm to the touch. These cookies are like pillows, soft and delicious!
