Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Oil the baking sheet with vegetable oil. Stir the oats, almonds, wheat germ, whole-wheat flour, oat bran, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and ginger together in a large bowl. Whisk the apple juice, honey, vanilla and butter in a bowl. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry, and then toss well to mix.
Spread the granola on the prepared baking sheet. Bake about 45 minutes, stirring the granola well every 15 minutes, until a shade browner than it started and dry to the touch. (It will become crispier as it cools)
Cool on the baking sheet, break up any large pieces, and then store in an air-tight container until ready to serve.
