Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Put the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a bowl, mix thoroughly, and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the applesauce, brown sugar, and corn syrup.
Mix until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Stir in the beaten egg white, then the vanilla extract.
Add the cinnamon and the rolled oat mixture.

With a 1/4 cup measure, scoop level measures of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between each.
