Fuel your morning with one of these make-ahead breakfast kebabs and you’re sure to get your day off to a sunny start. Kiwis, raspberries, and oranges provide a good dose of immune-boosting vitamin C, while the oats and chia provide fibre, which may help us feel full until lunchtime.

Customize your oatmeal bites by substituting cranberries for any dried fruit you have on hand. Dried apricots, blueberries, strawberries, mango, or golden raisins all work well.
To make sauce, combine all ingredients in blender. For a smooth sauce, strain through a fine-mesh sieve and discard seeds. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
To make kebabs, roughly chop cranberries before placing in small bowl along with orange zest and juice. Toss to combine and set aside for 5 minutes.
In large bowl, stir together oats, seeds, cinnamon, and cranberry mixture with wooden spoon. Add nut butter, syrup, and vanilla. Stir until mixture is well combined and sticks together when pinched between your fingers. With wet hands, roll tablespoons of mixture into balls; you should get 16 in total. Set aside.
To assemble kebabs, alternate threading 2 oatmeal balls and several pieces of kiwi, raspberries, and oranges onto 8 - 8 in (20 cm) wooden skewers. Serve with Raspberry Coconut Sauce for dipping.
