Hi Lynn,

Thanks for reaching out! Usually coconut oil is better for baking and is commonly used as a substitute for butter. We recommend using olive oil in most baked recipes, such as quick breads or brownies. However, as olive oil does have a stronger flavour than some other oils, this can affect the flavour of the baked goods.

May I know can I replace coconut oil with olive oil?
