In a mixing bowl, combine your dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine 1/4 cup of your pumpkin, coconut oil, and syrup and mix until combined.
Combine your dry and wet ingredients and mix until combined. If the batter is too thick, add the extra 1/4 cup of pumpkin.
Pour the lemon coconut bar batter into the lined pan. Top with the lemon curd/jam, then sprinkle the entire pan with the crumble mixture, ensuring the lemon curd is completely covered in them.
