As with all the Larabar products, it is simply dates coupled with other ingredients that provide the desired flavor.  This peanut-butter-cookie Laurabar recipe produces a snack bar that really does taste like a peanut butter cookie (with chocolate-chip option too).  It is a great and simple way to have gluten-free peanut-butter cookies at hand.

Most of all, making your own Larabar-copies at home can be done for about 25-cents/bar instead of the $1.00-$1.69/bar that stores charge.  For a 10-minute investment of your time, you can save a lot of money on a gluten-free snack or dessert with this recipe.  And, it will give you the basic idea of how to make other variations of the product.
