I've been trying to substitute coconut oil for butter or margarine in baking without a lot of success.  In most baked goods the texture is different and heavier.  Anyone have any advise for using coconut oil?

When I've made muffins with it I notice that too and I add a little more moisture in the form of milk or applesauce or whatever wet ingredient is already going in. This works for muffins, not sure about anything else though.

I would use butter instead of margarine. Avocado might be a replacement. There's a new product called Thrive Algae oil for cooking and baking but, I have not tried it yet.

I am experimenting specifically with coconut oil to make it dairy-free.  Will try adding some extra liquid.  Thanks.
