Bob's Red Mill carries it, and they sell it on Amazon (possible free shipping) as well as their own site.

Any bran should work in a recipe, or possibly just a high fiber flour, I have a hard time finding recipes with it used...what is your recipe for?

Ground flaxseed makes sense to me.  Give it a try and let us know.

Just so you know that rice bran doesn't behave in the exact same way as ground flax seeds will
when water is added.

Water is going to soak up the 2 T of ground flax seed meal a bit more than it would if you use 2 T of rice bran.  The rice bran is the outer, undigestible coating of the rice and doesn't hold onto as much liquid as flax which can absorb up to 10x its weight in water.. ..You might find you'll need to add more liquid to your recipe if you go with the flax..  

Another option is to use apple fiber which I think EN R G makes or to use almond flour.  I bake
a lot and can usually get a feel for my batter.  Given this is a cookie and not a muffin, you might be able to sense if your batter is too stiff before you form it into cookies.

If the batter feels too dry your cookies will be tough..  I've often remedied a too stiff dough by adding some applesauce or pureed dried fruit . (which will give more moisture to a baked product)

Yes, the health benefits of rice bran make it worth seeking, and using, if you can find it.
