How do you make food not stick to baking sheets?
Most commercial baking sprays are made with vegetable oil, which makes this a no brainer when it comes to using this as a replacement to grease your pans.

Line Your Pan or Cookie Sheet

Silicone baking pads, often referred to by the brand name Silpat, are a great replacement for parchment paper. Just drop one onto your baking sheet, and whatever you cook or bake on it will come right off. There’s no need to grease your pan, and there’s very little to clean up afterward.
