Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the oats, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, wheat germ, dried cranberries, almonds, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl; mix well with a spoon. Make a well in the center of the ingredients. Pour the honey, egg, oil and vanilla into the well. Use your hands to mix it well, coating everything evenly. Pat the granola in the prepared baking pan. Use an oven mitt to place it in the oven. Bake for 25 to 27 minutes or just until the mixture is golden brown around the edges. Remove the pan from the oven with oven mitt and place on a wire rack. Cool for 5 mintues. Use a table knife to cut into bars while still warm; the mixture will become too hard to cut if it becomes cool.
