I have a double switch in my bathroom that powers my exhaust fan and light. I wanted to replace this box with a double gang and install an outlet In addition to the switch. When I opened up the wall today I saw that there was only a single 12/3 wire going into the box. Can I still convert it into a switch + outlet or does the end line setup only let me have the switch?

Thanks!

The receptacle should be on a 20 amp circuit.

If the circuit is shared between other bathrooms it cannot power the receptacle.
