    I used a lot of apple sauce and organic canola oil to replace butter in baking when I was vegan. You can replace some or all of the fat with apple sauce - typically I do about half. And the rest can be oil.

      $50Mil to OK canola for US consumption. The negative effects of canola oil are long term, so won't be observable immediately. However, eucric acid, present in canola in low amounts, is not good to eat in any amount.

      Snopes and a couple of other sites say canola is OK. There are so many safer options that I avoid it.
