No... coconut flour would be disgusting. Trust me I have tried it. I say simmer it down. All the things I know of have tons of carbohydrats, though arrowroot comes from a tuber instead of a grain and would work.
We went over this about a month or so ago.
Some good suggestions in the thread.
I mostly now use Xanthan gum. Works well for gravies, coconut milk milk, BBQ sauces. The result is more gelatinous than a starch type of thickener, but it works.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone!
I grok, therefore I am.
I've also tried the coconut flour. Seems like it should work, but trust me, it doesn't work.
Arrowroot is definitely my fave. Keep it in the freezer or fridge for freshness.
Coconut flour doesn't work so much because it doesn't have starch (or polysaccharides, what gums have.)
Arrow root is a starch. So, if one is trying to avoid carbs, a no go. Like corn starch, no need to refrigerate, either.
