Can I substitute coconut oil for canola oil 1:1?

I have some gluten-free brownie mix that someone gave me and the recipe calls for 3/4 cup of canola oil. Can I substitute coconut oil for the canola? If so, is it a 1:1 ratio?

Will the coconut oil do anything funky in the brownies at room temp?

you sure can, and it will be tastier and healthier

with regards to your brownies you might notice a whitish layer on them (thats the oil solidifying) if its a little cold where you are , otherwise, go for it!

Coconut oil can stay room temperature for years without rancidity. With the antibacterial MCFAs, you should have less funkiness than other oils left out. Butter ghee is another good alternative. I often use a little less. You might want to also look into using seltzer in place of various ingredients.
