Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine flour, sugar and baking powder in a bowl and mix.
In a separate bowl, mix together 1 cup of pecans with the coconut oil, chia seeds, water and vanilla until well combined.
Combine dry and wet ingredients.
Add the remaining cup of pecans, the hazelnuts, the chocolate chips and the banana, and mix until well combined.
Spoon batter, approximately 1 tbsp at a time, on the prepared baking pan. Allow space in between each, as they will expand.
Place in the middle of the preheated oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
