Best Peanut Butter Treats in Los Angeles? (PB& J, PB cookies, PB shakes, PB whatever)

Does anyone have recommendations for some to-die-for peanut butter dishes they've had at any restaurants in LA? The best PB&J you've had someplace? The best peanut butter cookies? The best PB shake? The best peanut butter whatever it may be? Just as long as peanut butter is the central focus of dish. Thanks so much for your help!

  1. I love the peanut butter at the Curious Palate. It's a whole different animal from Skippy. They have a PB&J sandwich on the menu, but I haven't had that - I've just bought the peanut butter and eaten it straight-up.

    1. Oh My Pan (peanut butter toast)

      Nickel Diner (peanut butter potato chip cake)

      1. The best peanut butter in a jar: Magees in the Farmers Market. NOTHING LIKE IT!

        The Best peanut butter cookie: Peanut butter sandwich cookie at McCalls Meat and Fish!

        The best peanut butter pastry: Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Covered Donut at Stans in Westwood

          while you're at the farmer's market try the peanut brittle and peanut butter fudge/rocky road fudge at little johns...known for their english toffee, the fudge and other stuff are awesome too....

        2. Agree with Dommy! Stan's donuts in Westwood "The Huell" Peanut butter and chocolate donut and also their Peanut Butter and Fresh Banana Donut.

          2. Not technically peanut butter but Red Medicine's Coconut Bavarois was the first thing that came to mind. The peanut croquant tastes like the best peanut butter cookies ever.
