Carb Source Equivalent to Oats?


Just wondering what carb sources are as good, or nearly as good as Oats. I currently live in Asia and oats are much pricier than oats in good ol` North America. So just wondering is there an alternative, maybe along the lines of beans or some kind of grains. Any help would be appreciated!


Asia is huge, where are you exactly?
Anyway, buckwheat is good and widely available in most part of Asia (China, Taiwan, Japan…) Buckwheat doesn’t contain gluten, technically speaking it’s not a cereal…

Whoops sorry, forgot to specify,


Quinoa is also gluten free.

But not something you would have in the place of oats IMO (reread the OP, ignore this)
