Celebrate Peanut Month the Los Angeles Way

March is National Peanut Month -- though we think they could've called it Peanut Butter Month and we'd all be celebrating the same way. Because yes, peanuts are high in protein and healthy fat and pretty good on their own ... but, with only a few exceptions, it's really all about the peanut butter. Below are some of our favorite peanut preparations available around Los Angeles, from sweet to savory. And one that we're not so sure about, but hey, at least they're trying.

The national consumption average of peanuts is six pounds per year. Where do you fall on the spectrum?
