Sounds like a very good recipe to me. But I have questions about the brown rice syrup. I've never heard of it before. More info and suggestions about using it please. Thanks. - 2/26/09

Brown rice syrup is the texture of honey or corn syrup, but doesn't taste quite as sweet and it has a lower glycemic index. You can find it in natural foods stores or sections of large groceries.
Oveall I really like this recipe. What is one serving size? What is the scoop size of the protein powder? I used splenda instead- know it doesn't exchange 1:1. The outcome seemed quite dry even after the choc chips-- I like chunks. Any suggestions? Thanks for sharing!! - 9/29/10
This sounds really good but what is stevia extract? I have never heard of it and I am pretty new to the healthy eating thing. - 11/14/08

Stevia is an herb, and the extract is very sweet. 1 tsp of stevia extract is approximately equal to 1 cup of sugar for sweetening power, so a little goes a long way. It can be found in many health markets or the health foods sections of major grocery stores.
I put the chocolate chips in before baking (whoops). It still turned out alright but the granola wasn't really sweet and crunchy enough. I drizzled Torani sugar free vanilla syrup over it (maybe 1/3 cup worth) and this made it so good! Love the high protein count:) thanks - 2/6/10
curious to where youd find most of those ingredients? are there substitutes avail.? - 11/10/08

The brown rice syrup and stevia are from a local bulk foods store and can probably be found at most health food stores. The protein powder can be found at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, etc. I modified other recipes that I have seen to replace honey or sugar, and the protein is just there to add protein. :)
