When you're baking muffins or quick bread or making waffles or pancakes, you can substitute applesauce (or pear sauce) or mashed ripe banana for a portion of oil. I generally sub 1/2 to 3/4 of the volume for muffins or quick bread, and about half for waffles or pancakes.

More Information:

For the waffles or pancakes, make sure you've got a good non-stick surface.
