Coconut substitute for corn ketchup

I have a severe nut allergy and cannot use peanut oil or coconut milk. What can I use to substitute these ingredients? Thanks!

Recipe question for: Corn Ketchup

Another way to think about this sauce is its origin story or its main flavor profile.
Ketchup began in China with fish sauce (anchovy, mostly) as a main ingredient and is now made with many fruits, sometimes nuts or vegetables.
The sweet and sour profile, as well as the spices, evoke chutney (from Indian sub-continent).
They also make me think of muhamara (walnuts, pomegranate seeds, salty flavorings) from Syria and/or other countries nearby.
If you can eat ingredients in those sauces, think of using them instead of the corn butter.
