I happened to stumbleupon this webpage listing substitutes for butter. This is pretty interesting. I might try this… Tho that photo does look a little weird. 

Who Needs Butter for Baking When You Have Avocado? And Other Substitutes…

After all the decadence over the holidays and Valentine’s Day, your waistline could use a break. But the thought of giving up your sweets is enough to send you into sugar shock. Try these butter alternatives the next time you bake for a lower-fat version that’s just as tasty. After all, one cup of butter in a recipe adds a whopping 1,600 calories and 177 grams of fat. Eek!

Avocados: The naturally smooth and creamy texture of avocados is a perfect sub for butter. Though baking with avocados won’t make your breads, muffins, cookies, cakes, and pies taste like avocados, it will give light-colored dough a slight green tint.

How To: Start off by scooping the green flesh out of the skin with a spoon and using your blender to pulse into a puree. You can add 2 teaspoons of lemon juice per cup for light-colored dough to avoid browning. When using in lieu of butter, substitute 1 cup of pureed avocado for every cup of butter. Reduce your oven temperature by 25 percent and increase your baking time. This will help to prevent your cake from rising up in the middle or, alternatively, caving in. It’ll also prevent the cake from browning too quickly.

The Advantages: It’s a great way to reduce fat in your desserts. A 3.5-ounce serving of butter has a whopping 81 grams of fat compared to 14 grams in the same serving of avocado. You’ll also eliminate saturated fat from your desserts, replacing them with healthy fats. Plus, avocados not only have a ton of vitamins, but they also may reduce cholesterol and fight heart disease.
