Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.
Add warm water to flour mixture, beating well at low speed of an electric mixer.
Add molasses and oil; beat 2 minutes at medium speed.
Gradually add wheat germ, wheat bran, and enough of the 1 1/2 cups bread flour to make a soft dough.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons bread flour over work surface.
Turn dough out onto floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 to 10 minutes).
Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top.
Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 35 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
Punch dough down; divide in half.
Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons bread flour over work surface.
Turn 1 portion of dough out onto surface; roll into a 14- x 7-inch rectangle.
Roll up, starting at short side, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch ends to seal.
Place, seam side down, in an 8 1/2- x 4 1/2- x 3-inch loafpan coated with cooking spray.
Repeat procedure with remaining bread flour and dough.
Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
