Agree with ATG117. If it's for health reasons I'd go for grape seed oil instead - much more neutral flavour.

I would usually use canola oil or grape seed oil because their flavors are mild. I love olive oil in thing like shortbread it makes it crispy and adds that rich olive flavor but for regular baked goodies olive oil is to strong you could always try light olive oil if you really want to use olive oil it has a very mild taste.

Olive oil is too strong of a flavor for many recipes. Why use it when it will over power the flavor profile and costs 4x as much as appropriate oil?
