Need substitution help - replacing sugar and butter

I want to make some banana bread today - I have a favorite recipe that turns out every time, however, seeing as I'm a diabetic I'd like to replace the following:

1 cup sugar stirred into 1/2 cup melted butter/margarine; with agave syrup.

I've got the sugar conversion figured out but what the heck do I replace the butter/margarine with?? I'm absolutely stumped on this - I need to put some kind of fat in there, other than an egg the butter is the only fat in the recipe. Can I use applesauce to replace it (what would the loss of fat result in?). I've heard of using the applesauce trick, but am worried about the result. Help!!
