In a previous video, it was stated that “regular” cocoa powder was healthier than the processed “dutched” cocoa powder, but this recipe states dutched. I prefer the unprocessed which I believe to be healthier.

You are absolutely right that alkali-processed “dutched” cocoa is not as healthy (See Update on Chocolate for the graph and Healthiest Chocolate Fix for some other chocolate comparisons). Dutched cocoa can have as few as half the phytonutrients, but that just means you have to use twice as much! Making things even more chocolatey has never been a problem for me, and I just like the taste so much better that my household uses Dutch (like for our healthy chocolate ice cream recipe), but if the taste of regular cocoa works for you, then go for it–you’re getting even more benefit per spoonful!
