In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg yolks, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, chia seeds and flaxseeds until blended. Pour buttermilk mixture into flour mixture, and stir until evenly mixed.

Beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold beaten egg whites into flour and buttermilk mixture just until blended.

Preheat the waffle iron. Use scant 1/3 cup batter for each waffle (or more depending on the waffle iron).
