Preheat oven to 350°F and place rack in center. Toast oatmeal and pecans on baking sheet until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove and reserve. Turn oven up to 375°F. Cut butter into 1-inch pieces. Use metal blade to process with both sugars until smooth, about 2 minutes. Scrape work bowl as necessary. Add eggs and vanilla and pulse until just mixed, about 6 times. Add pecans, flour, salt, baking soda, and half the oatmeal. Pulse until mixed, about 8 times. Remove to large bowl, add remaining oatmeal and chocolate chips and stir to mix. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased baking sheets 1 inch apart and bake until golden brown, about 11 minutes.
