Fun fact: November is National Peanut Butter Lovers month. A staple in so many people's diet, peanut butter is a versatile spread that can be enjoyed in just about everything. In fact, here are some unique dishes in the Twin Cities that will help you indulge in your nutty fix this month, whether it’s for brunch, dinner or dessert.


PB&J French Toast

World Street Kitchen

Think of it as a step (or two) above that classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich you had as a kid. This French toast, available on World Street Kitchen’s brunch menu, comes on Hawaiian sweet bread, with sour cherry jam, caramel, peanuts, whipped cream and of course, peanut butter.


Where to go: 2743 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis

Contact: 612-424-8855, www.eatWSK.com


The Nutty Buddy

Sporty’s Pub and Grill

Missing the Minnesota State Fair? No worries—there are still opportunities to try bold, messy and greasy food combinations. Sporty’s gives you that friendly, neighborhood dive bar atmosphere in the Como neighborhood and offers an impressive roster of burgers, including the peanut butter burger. The Nutty Buddy requires an intense appetite, however, with two thick strips of bacon, pepper jack cheese, mayo and a thick slab of creamy peanut butter to top it all off.   


Where to go: 2124 Como Ave. S.E., Minneapolis

Amish Malted Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

FireLake Grill House and Cocktail Bar

This pie embraces the classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Topped with peanuts and a chocolate-y stick, this pie is one of the top choices on FireLake's dessert menu. It’s also the perfect cure if you happen to have a giant sweet tooth.

2100 Killebrew Drive, Bloomington (Mall of America location)
