Can I substitute canola oil for anything when baking cookies?

Is it an ingredient?
Yes it's an ingredient
Sure. In fact almost any neutral oil will do. Just not butter. Different properties. Happy baking!
If the recipe calls for butter, then using oil will change the texture. If you start with a recipe that calls for oil, you'll probably be more satisfied with the results.
I use coconut oil for a lot of my baking.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
