I don't know about the oil - do you have applesauce?

No - no applesauce

Here is a chart. The conversion should be the same for other types of oil. http://queencreekolivemill.com/del-piero/recipes/butter-to-olive-oil-conversion/

The recipe I use calls for 1/3 cup of oil and it turns out beautifully every time

regarding substituting vegetable oil for butter in banana bread....I dont like using vegetable oil it is horrible for your body (with the exception of using it to clean your hands after painting etc) extra virgin olive oil would be a much better substitute or and I have not tried this one yet but walnut oil might be a good substitute

I use applesauce instead of butter sometimes.

Do you have any apples? Cut up about 4 apples and put them into blender and make apple sauce
