In a 2-cup glass measure, combine the apple juice and raisins.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Remove from the microwave, cover with foil, and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, soy flakes, barley flakes, dry milk, wheat germ, bran or rice bran, walnuts or almonds, and cinnamon.
Drain the liquid from the raisins and pour it over the dry ingredients (reserve the raisins).
Toss until the granola is well moistened.
Place a piece of parchment on the floor of the microwave or on the turntable.
Spread half of the granola mixture in a thin layer on the paper.
