While the blender is still whirring, add the chia meal and gum OR gelatin to the blender jar and whir until mixed (we wait on the thickeners until now so the blender does not work as hard and all the grains get pulverized!)
Decide whether you would like to use a loaf pan or English muffin rings (my preference) and grease them up. I can make about 10-11 English muffins with this batter.
Let the dough rise in a warm place. I like to use my oven that has been briefly heated and then turned off. My English muffins rarely take longer than 15 minutes (the blender warmed everything up nicely) to rise to just under the rims of the rings, and my loaf takes at least 30-45 minutes. We are not going for double in size here, about half that!
Removing the pan when rising almost complete, turn the oven on to 375 degrees.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes until golden brown and the internal temperature is at least 205-210 degrees. If using a loaf, this takes me about 50-55 minutes to reach that temperature.
