Yes, you may do so, the key distinction that you have made in the question is the ball 'out' of the bunker.

If the ball is no longer in the bunker you are in you may ground the club, but be aware, there is really no need to.

What is grounding a golf club?

When you 'ground' your club you have caused your golf club to come in contact with the ground or another substance such as water, sand or weeds. Generally speaking the subject of grounding a club centres around hazards where you are not permitted to touch the surface or the weeds that exist within an area marked as a hazard. If a player grounds their club in any of these examples they are penalized two strokes for doing so. If a player grounds their club on the putting surface and the ball moves - by gravity, wind or anything else - there is a penalty for this as well.
