Shortcrust oil pastry recipe

I make my own pastry with Trex, but I'm pretty sure its palm oil, which I try to avoid (long story).

I cant use most baking fats as I also have a milk allergy.

I need a recipe for shortcrust pastry with oil but the ones I've seen on the internet say its a more crumbly and I need it to hold its texture.

Are there any other oils/hard fats I can use? or a hard fat thats not an animal fat? DH is diabetic so I have to keep the saturated fat low.

So not much to ask! I make no sugar apple pies for DH as its pretty much the only dessert he has as diabetic desserts have sugar in them in the guise of fructose etc.

So anyone else have a milk allergy, diabetic household who makes their own pastry?.

What about using soy margerine? I know it's not strictly solid, but it might work better than oil?
