Gently mix until all the apple slices are evenly coated.
Set the apples aside.
For the Batter:
Place 1 inch of coconut oil for frying in a skillet and heat.
While the oil is heating, in another bowl prepare the batter by combining and mixing together the arrowroot, maple sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
Add the eggs and maple syrup and stir to combine.
When the oil is hot, work in batches dipping each apple slice into the batter and dropping gently into the oil to fry.
Cook 1-2 minutes on each side then transfer to a paper towel lined plate.
Repeat until all the apples are cooked.

If you need to reheat these, broil in the oven for 2-4 minutes to crisp up the dough.
