    What kind of baking are you doing? Different oils for different uses.

    Virgin Coconut Oil works well and very good for you.

    You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

    If you're baking, with grains/flour, then you need to be cognizant of the fact that the liquid purpose is part of the vegetable oil measurement. If you substitute with butter or coconut oil, these are fats that are solid when cool, compared to vegetable oil that remains liquid. If the recipe calls for a half cup of vegetable oil, for example, substituting that for a solid fat will not give you the same result. Depending on the recipe, you may also need to add some liquid or fruit, such as applesauce, to retain the required moistness.

    I do not profess to be an expert in the area of baking by any means. We melt our coconut oil first and then measure it in liquid form. Has worked well so far, might consider applesauce as an experiment to see what that adds to the equation.

    Avocado oil?


    I've never tried it in baking, personally, but it's liquid at room temp and has a high heat value. Though I don't know if it would impart an avocado taste or not.

    Like Mainer suggested, unsweetened applesauce is a good substitute. Although I have been using it as a replacement since I've been following no-fat diets for a couple years. I still like it

    Thanks much for all of your replies! I think I'm going to go with butter or coconut oil. Will let you know how they turn out!
