Receptacles for kitchen undercabinet lights

I've just built some new kitchen cabinets and ordered some of the flat LED light strips to put under the upper cabinets. They are powered by a typical 12v power block.

My question is what is the best way for me to power these and not have these power blocks visible? I thought about installing some outlets at the top of the upper cabinets and running the power down through the inside of the cabinet. Wasn't sure if that was the best way. Looks like I'll have 3 power blocks to plug in.

The receptacles inside the cabinets should either be set flush into the back of the cabinets, with the cable fed through the wall, or mounted in surface-approved boxes and fed with the conductors protected by conduit or some other approved method.
