I have made almost flourless chocolate tortes substituting rice flour with good results, I would think coconut flour would also work.

Be careful, it absorbs considerable more liquid than other flours, so you'll need more fluids...there is no hard and fast rule that I've learned of, but maybe just add some extra milk/egg/water (don't know the recipe)until it looks right....the other rule of thumb is use a combo of rice flour 70% and coconut flour 30%...that will work

In the comments of the post, Molly Wizenberg said that you can use a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa instead of the flour.
