Muffins I want to make lower in fat

I make these muffins frequently and want to make them now, but I really need to sub the margarine for possibly applesauce. Would I use the same amount? I have done this in other recipes but there has always been an alternate measurement, I haven't had to guess.
By the way, these are the most awesome muffins. MMM

Strawberry muffins:

4 oz. unsalted margarine (I usually use earth balance)
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 banana
2 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup soy milk, with a little arrowroot as thickener
1 teaspoon vanilla
15 fresh strawberries, dry, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)

Directions:

Cream together margarine and vegan sugar until light and fluffy. Add the banana, and cream until well blended. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Combine soy milk, arrowroot and vanilla. Alternate adding wet and dry mixtures to creamed mixture. Fold in strawberries. Fill muffin tins nearly full, and bake at 375F for 25 to 30 minutes.
