You can substitute applesauce (especially if baking something sweet). You can also use oils, mashed avocado or banana, or nut butters. I have read that you can substitute beans but I havent tried this one; the rest I have actually tried and it works well

I have used equal amounts of margarine, shortening or applesauce with good success. I more frequently use coconut oil or if I'm out sometimes I use vegetable oil. The only thing is with the oils (especially coconut oil) you need to reduce the amount by 13 so for 9Tbs of butter you would use 6 Tbs of coconut oil instead.

The reason for this is that it tends to be a bit oily of you use the full amount.

Oil, margarine, or half applesauce.

All depends on what you are baking. If you have margarine that will be fine or use applesauce.
