Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (325 if using convection.)
Add your pecans to a large food processor (11 cups or larger), and process for about 30 seconds until they form a wet sand-like texture. (About 30 seconds).
Then, add in the shredded coconut and baking powder. Process just until combined, about 15 seconds.
Next, add in the maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla extract. Process about 30-45 seconds until the dough forms. (It will look a bit like oatmeal at this point.)
Transfer the dough to an 8x8 pan, lined with parchment paper. Gently spread the dough flat and top with the chocolate chips (and additional pecans if you’d like!).
Bake for 40-45 minutes until the middle starts to rise and the edges are golden brown.
Allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes, cut them into bars and enjoy!
