Subs for butter?

I found a great recipe for Weetabix muffins but can't bring myself to make them with butter. Does anyone here have tips for a decent substitute? I am not sure if there could be anything that would work.

I always substitute margarine, preferably one with very low to no trans-fats, like Smart Balance. I'm surprised there is butter in a muffin recipe. All the ones I've made call for oil, which I substitute at least half with applesauce.

We switched to Smart Balance a while back and I have used it on just about everything. No one has really noticed any difference. What are you making?

Lurpak's well expensive I always buy whatever's on offer and use it in everything! I'm such a cheapskate I think we're on flora light ATM, which is actually really nice!

You can use yogurt or apple sauce as a substitute for butter in many recipes. When I make vegan brownies I replace the butter with apple sauce and they still turn out to be tasty. It is much healthier than butter, that is for sure.

Land o' Lakes makes a butter and olive oil spread that we like a lot. It's often on sale for $1.99 for a small tub of it at our local market.
