I recently changed the URLs of my articles and they are now 301 redirected to the new URL format. However, the AMP equivalent version of those articles rel="canonical" tag still links to the old version of the URL (now a 301 page).

Is this ok?

Ie, given <link rel="canonical" href="$SOME_URL"> , can $SOME_URL be a redirected page?

In the official documentation, they only refer to a 200 OK absolute URL, so, in this case, and to be completely sure there is no problem with a 301 redirect URL, I'll use the URL Inspection Tool (Google Search Console) to verify Google can access to the final URL.

You can also use test live URL option if you did some changes to the URL and want to check them right ahead. If everything is correct you should see 0 error in your GSC AMP's report.
