What can I substitute for 1/2 cup of oil in brownies?

Chef's answer
Yogurt and buttermilk are dairy-based substitutes for oil in brownie recipes. Using plain yogurt is a better choice for baking than flavored yogurt. If you're making a recipe that requires 1/2 cup of oil, you should use a 1/4 cup of plain yogurt or buttermilk.
