What can I use to brush on my loaves before baking? It needs to be vegan. Would canola oil work as well as melted butter?

Not quite as well, but it will certainly help give it a good shine. Olive oil would work nicely, too.

What about a non-dairy margarine.
I would certainly use margarine if I had some, but sadly I don't! Thanks for the help, guys!
Coconut Oil is great is you have a sweet bread :)

Soy milk will work as a vegan glaze. Almond milk too.
Thanks everyone! I figured my instincts were correct, but don't bake vegan regularly enough to be completely sure.
