Does anyone know of a source for this? I usually use almond flour if I need to make a Paleo treat, but the Omega3 vs 6 ration is not good. Macademia nuts have a much better ratio, so I have been grinding them up which is hard because they are so oily and just using less butter. I am wondering if one can buy them this way?

I've never seen the meal in stores but its easy to make your own in a food processo, blender or spice grinder. The trick is low speed, quick pulses, otherwise you'll end up with macademia butter (not a bad thing).
I use a regular 1qt canning jar on my blender blade, and put in a small batch of nuts at a time--perhaps 5 or 6 macademias. Pulse at low speed.

I use macadamia meal in place of hazelnut/almond flour in recipes with excellent results. I've never had a problem grinding the macadamia in the food processor. You could try roasting first.
Unfortunately I do not know a source for pre-made macadamia flour in the northern hemisphere.
